One of these underlying causes was alliances between countries. Alliances caused countries to join the once small war to defend their alliances. According to the map in Document A, there were two major alliances within Europe during 1914: the Triple Entente, composed of England, Russia, and France; and the Triple Alliance, composed of Germany, Austria-Hungary (A-H), and Italy. When A-H, a member of the Triple Alliance, declared war on Serbia because a Serbian nationalist party member assassinated the archduke of A-H, Russia declared war on A-H to defend them. Then, like a domino effect, Germany declare war on Russia and France to defend A-H. England, defending Russia and France, then declared war on Germany and A-H.
The final two causes for the war was Alliances and the Assassination of the Archduke from the beginning of the war. The assassination of the Archduke was just a starting point for the war to begin. After the assassination, that’s when countries began forming alliances. There were two alliances: The Triple Alliances, or the Allies, and the Triple Entente, or the Central Powers. The Allies consisted of France, Great Britain, Russia (up to half way through the war), the United States (at the end of the war), and Italy (at the end of the war).
H.G Wells said, the Great War was supposed to be “the war to end all wars”; ironically enough a few years later a second world war broke out due to Germany feeling like the Treaty of Versailles treated them unfairly and the League of Nations having little to no power. World War II started on September 1. 1939 and ended nearly six years later on September 2, 1945. The war was long and bloody with nearly sixty million civilians and soldier casualties combined (according to nationalww2museum.org). There were five major turning points in World War II.
It is the year 1918 and I am still living with my dad, mom, sister, brother, and my Labrador Retriever. The Great War or The War to End All Wars just ended a few days ago. My family and I live in St. Louis, Missouri. The war has affected everyone in the world more than likely. I know it has affected everyone here in the United States.
World War 1 was the first large battle among so many countries, including the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria, against the Allies. The Allies consisted of the United Kingdom, the British Empire, France, Russian Empire, the United States, Italy and Japan. The war was all caused because of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, who was killed on June 28, 1914. It caused extreme amounts of chaos, but after so much fighting, all the people wanted was peace. That’s when the Treaty of Versailles came into play.
World War One was a global war located in Europe, which began on 28 July 1914 and persisted until 11 November 1918. More than nine million soldiers and seven million civilians died as a result, in a casualty rate heightened by the contender’s industrial and technological sophistication, and increased tactical standoff. It was one of the deadliest conflicts of all time, which paved the way for major political modifications, including uprisings in many of the nations involved. Although there was a direct chain of events that subsequently led to the fighting, the wars actual root causes go much deeper.
The Seven Years War, “was truly a world war in which the conflict spilled out from the American colonies to other parts of the world”. The war ended with the “Treaty Of Paris” and it also provided Great Britain with enormous territorial gains in North America but before we get to that we should talk about how it started. There were one-hundred and fifty years of conflict with the French and British which ended with the Seven Years War. The war began with the French and the First Peoples combined to force “expel” the British colonists from Ohio valley in 1754. The local fight quickly escalated into a full out war.
Spanning from 1914 to 1918, a major battle, known as the First World War was fought due to disruptions occurring in Austria surrounding the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand in June 1914. Following the First World War, unpredictability of the political and economic systems of Germany led to a Second World War that lasted from 1939 to 1945. Both wars were fought and won by strategic military alliances between different countries (Diffen). Although these wars were fought at different times and in different places, nevertheless there were some similarities between the two like how they both ended in a lot of death and destruction.
World War I, 1914-1918, was the 'Great War ', the 'war to finish all wars '. in this conflict, the foremost necessary piece of ground was the 'Western Front ' in France and European nation wherever nice battles were fought with names that were once unit words in Australia — Fromelles, the Somme, Bullecourt, Messines, Passchendaele and Villars–Bretonneux. Of the quite 295,000 Australians UN agency served during this theatre of war within the Australian Imperial Force (AIF), 46,000 lost their lives and 132,000 were wounded. The Western Front was the most theatre of war throughout warfare I.
World War II began in 1914 and lasted until 1918. It was a war for power and is known as the Great War. But what caused such a war? It so happens that the Treaty of Versailles, which ended World War I, was actually the force that drove World War II. The Treaty of Versailles produced German anger and humiliation, sowing the seeds for World War II.
“In war there are no unwounded soldiers” (Jose Narosky). Prior to World War I, alliances were formed, which were groups/ countries formed to keep peace among the Great Powers in Europe. The first alliance, the Triple Alliance was a military alliance between Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy. The second alliance, the Triple Entente was another military alliance between Great Britain, France, and Russia. Having rival alliances in Europe, confrontation between both alliances had started to occur.
