agadir defined in 1939 year

agadir - Agadir;
agadir - Bay and port of Morocco, 23 m. S.E. of Cape Ghir. In 1910, as a counterpoise to the influence of France in Morocco, some German capitalists bought from the sultan concessions over a large part of the country. In July, 1911, the German government sent the gunboat Panther to Agadir, and her officers promised the Moroccan kaids the support of Germany in resisting the control of France. This nearly brought about a European war, but the two Powers came to an arrangement by which France was given a free hand in Morocco in return for the cession of about 100,000 sq. in. of land in the Congo basin.
