Chapter 885 – Land Sea Air Army Formation
Ouyang Shuo's choice to open up the Cape of Good Hope trading route now also had strength and interest considerations.
First, the seafaring specialty given by Mazu meant that the effect of the storms there would be really weak on the Great Xia Merchant ships. Moreover, it was summer now, so the ocean waves were much weaker.
Secondly, Ouyang Shuo wanted to use the Atlantic Squadron to open up a new trade route for the dynasty; this would ensure that if the Mediterranean messed up, they would have other choices.
Thirdly, Africa was hiding numerous riches, so it was worth taking the risk.
In history, from 1415, the Spanish had occupied Ceuta, and the European countries started their strong colonization of the African counties. It reached its peak in the 19th to 20th century with over 95% of Africa being split up while their resources were pillaged.
