Le regard des Britanniques sur la France en guerre (1870-1871) : l’évolution d’une opinion attentive

  • Piettre, Pauline
Registered author(s):

    Lorsque la France déclare la guerre à la Prusse en juillet 1870, le gouvernement britannique conserve une stricte neutralité tandis que l’opinion publique, à travers la presse notamment, réagit avec vigueur. Peu de voix s’élèvent alors en Grande-Bretagne pour défendre une France qui, jugée belliqueuse et agitée, semble fidèle à son image. Pourtant, au gré des défaites et des humiliations, les Britanniques se découvrent plein de compassion pour les Français ; le siège de Paris puis les exigences de la Prusse lors des conditions de paix finissent par retourner une opinion britannique qui condamne vivement l’annexion de l’Alsace-Lorraine. La guerre de 1870 amène ainsi les Britanniques à s’interroger sur les mutations continentales et à faire évoluer le regard qu’ils portaient sur la France depuis des décennies.
