**analyzing poem**

You're welcome. I'm a word-nerd and write some poetry of my own, so I like tryign to figure out what other Poets were thinking when they wrote their works.

**analyzing poem**

**World War 1**

In my opinion they should have turned Austria-Hungary into an autonomous noman's land. Neither country would be allowed to enter without permission from the other, and the Austria_Hungarians would have been allowed self-rule under some supervision, like we did with Puerto ...

**World War 1**

A pact with Russia to split Austria-Hungary would have been the logical choice, but the borders would have been too close for the comfort for either country.

**World War 1**

You need to understand something. Austria-Hungary was disputed land becasue it bordered both Russia and Germany. Both countries wanted it. But Germany was a little smart. They saw the spread of communism in Russia and knew if Russia gained hold of Austria-Hungary, Russia would...
