At the dawn of the 20th century, great hopes were invested in the ability of the naval forces to turn Germany into a world power. How did the German navy deal with associated expectations and disappointments, and why did it maintain its original aims despite many setbacks? Rojek develops a conceptual framework for analyzing the disappointment of political aspirations, thus making a valuable contribution to political history.
