Before the war happened, Russia, France and Britain had formed an alliance- the Triple Entente. All three countries think that Germany would be a threat to them. Russia thinks that Germany’s army base is too big; UK thinks that Germany’s wealth and navy increased to threaten UK; The relationship between Germany and France had been sour as Germany stole a land from France, and had been in a long-standing feud with Germany from then.

The French Revolution Beginning in 1789 and ending in the 1790s with the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte, the French Revolution was a popular uprising against the aristocracy and elite privileges. This period marked a major turning point for Europe and remains one of the most influential events in history. Although historians cite several potential explanations for this great ideological, political, and social upheaval, the main causes of the revolution include the financial collapse in France, Enlightenment influences, and environmental changes. In turn, the revolution led to the Reign of Terror, a decline in religious following, and the creation of a constitutional monarchy. Ultimately, the revolution and its effects allowed Napoleon Bonaparte to take control of France, beginning the Napoleonic era.

Before 1945, Europe was bathed in regional conflicts of its own. Nations of different Alliances, for example, the France and Britain of the Triple Entente rivaled Germany and Austrian Hungry of the Triple Alliance in the fields of increased militarization and nationalism. However, the WWII cost the European nations high death tolls and huge militarization expenditure so much that their supremacy was tremendously diminished, resetting the stage of international order. After the close of the WWII, namely 1945, the US rose to the stage of international affairs and wielded greater influence as it was one of the victors of war and it contributed much to end the War. On the other hand, the Soviet Union, which came into being long before 1945, amidst the chaos of the WWI, also became the major world power that contained the US.
In 1914, Britain put a distant blockade on Germany, which allowed them to control exits from the North Sea and damaged both Germany’s economy and War effort (Roskill 4: 533). Germany attempted to break Britain’s blockade, which resulted in the Battle of Jutland, in 1916.

The British had a regular, trained and salaried army. This army had well-trained officers who knew how to make their soldiers obey their orders. The soldiers were disciplined and the British army was extremely organized, yet the American’s strengths in the Battle of Yorktown over-powered the British and helped the Colonists win the Revolutionary War. The total number of soldiers fighting for the Americans were two and a half times the number of people fighting for the British. The American troops had other advantages, one being that General George Washington, who led the American troops, was an experienced leader.
They also had strong leaders like George Washington inspired the troops with loyalty. On the other side of the Atlantic the British were way to confident and their efforts were mostly uncoordinated. Another thing was the Foreign Allies. The Americans had many allies like France, Spain, and The Netherlands.

In my opinion there are many reason why the colonists won the revolutionary war.Perhaps it was how familiar they were with the land, or their helpful french allies. One of the most important battles of the war was the battle of saratoga. To me this seems to be the most important battle and moment in the whole war. After the colonists defeated the English in the 2 battles of Saratoga, it proved to the french that the americans could win the war and the french should come to aid the americans. The french were eager to join the war and weaken their enemy britain in any way they could.
