World War 1 was the first global conflict as it was a struggle between the leading world powers in Europe that had colonised the 19th century. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Bosnia, heir to the Austrian-Hungary throne was a major trigger factor that led to the World War breaking out. It initially began as a European quarrel caused by the rivalry between nations which led to a series of mobilisations. In addition, there were many other vital factors to consider and these include Imperialism, Nationalism, Alliances and Militarism. This essay will explain how the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in 1914 triggered a number of events that led to the outbreak of World War 1.

Moreover, due to the lack of productivity in the country with one-third of its male population being opium addicts, China’s economy was on fast decline. The Chinese were spending their money on
“The destruction of industry led to unemployment on a vast scale. The poverty of the country grew. The standard of living fell to terribly low levels.” Jawaharlal Nehru explains how India became the “typical” colonial economy.

The Xinhai revolution and the Tiananmen Square protest were both events that took place in order to counteract the current form of government at the time and also immensely contributed to the shaping of China. The rebellion of 1989 and the revolution of 1911 were both bloodbaths that were caused by military brutality and unjustifiable shootings. The 1911 revolution was initiated by an accidental bomb explosion in the Hubei province that sparked suspiciousness from the government to the soldiers.
