At the outbreak of the First World War, the northern part of Iran was controlled by Russia whose troops had invaded Iran before the war. For example in Azerbaijan province, the Russians appointed the officials and the taxes were paid into a Russian bank. In the Gilan province, there was an inflow of Russian peasants.
On the other hand, Britain did not invade Iran.
In the Esfahan city, there was a power struggle This power struggle was between the provincial governor (Bakhtiyari tribe) and the ex-governor (Qajar royal family) at its surface. But the European Great Powers were pulling the strings behind the scenes in this case. In other words, the international relations at the time were reflected in the Esfahan city.
At the beginning of 1915, some 200 German agents infiltrated Iran. Their maneuver caused Britain a great deal of trouble throughout the war.
At the beginning of the war, Britain dispatched a small unit to Mesopotamia in order to defend the oil field of Iran.
The aim of Germany in Iran was to reach Afghanistan. As a matter of course, Britain and Russia posted a cordon. Some German agents broke through the defenses and reached Afghanistan, but they could not shock the British Empire.
