Lars Scholl explains the way in which a 1920 agreement with American shipowners facilitated the re-entry of the Hamburg-American Line into international shipping after World War I. The essay explores how Germany resurrected its merchant fleet after surrendering almost all of its merchant machine to the Allies. National pride, the necessity of feeding a starving nation, and a desire to rebuild a ruined economy demanded the reconstruction of a domestically-owned merchant fleet.
