One reason why those territories were being targeted for takeover is because since Germany was made of imperialism and a new state.
Germany thought that if they had colonies, they would be as dominant as France and England. Germany just wanted to be powerful like them.
Germany sent soldiers and officers to the places in Africa and ordered them to administer, make laws for the land, and rule the territories and colonies.
Germany’s imperialism that led to the scramble for colonies along with all the disagreements, fights, and getting in trouble with England benefited them because it improved their relationship with France.
More trade routes were formed through new agreements and treaties between the Africans and Germans
