There are more reasons why WW1 would have started or things that would of sparked the flame too start
Causes of World War I World War I was the bar fight of all bar fights and was expected to end quickly. Unfortunately, the treacherous battle field held soldier's longer than expected. At first, Europe had been flourishing with colonies worldwide and had developed in technology greatly.
In both theaters of WWII, people were killed in masses, however, the reason for the high death rates differ greatly. Germany’s high anti-semitic beliefs and led to huge outcries against Jews in their country. This led to a plan called the Final Solution ( Spielvogel 858-860). This entailed the special strike forces of the SS, Einsatzgruppen, to round up Jews and execute them. Not only were Jews targeted, anyone considered non-Aryan were also executed such as Poles, Ukrainians, and even Gypsies.
The Short-Term And Long-Term Causes Of World War One (1914-1918) Introduction: World War One is to have been said that it is one of the most massive and destructive wars to have been taken place until that time period (1914-1918). In this World War we had some of the most main important great powerful rivals that were participating in the war. One of them was called the Triple Alliance and it included: Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy, and the other Alliance group was The Entente Alliance and it included Britain, France, Russia, and the USA (in which it joined later on in WW2). In order for World War One to occur it had to go through some causes for it to happen.
There are five major causes to World War I, militarism, alliances, nationalism, imperialism, and the spark that ignited the war; the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. The European powers did not make any active effort for more internationalist/cooperative policy that would have been the antithesis for the growing causes of World War I. It would only be after World War II and to some extent the European Union that would encourage Europeans to work together instead of turning the continent into a wasteland every few decades. Firstly, I would argue nationalism is the starting point for World War I. During the Industrial revolution, nationalism became an important driving force in European countries to industrialize and make technological progress.
Alliances and militarism are both very important causes of World War I, as well as lastly imperialism. On Document F it shows the population of the empires. The population of the empires determine how strong the countries can be and it gives them the opportunity to take over other countries. This factors into the war because countries clearly do not want to be taken over, so it causes more issues and leads to more fighting. If imperialism was not an issue in this war then this war may not have became as big as it did, because countries would not have been worried about being taken over, so they would not have fought as
The end of WWI was the beginning of a new age. This year 100th anniversary of the end of the great war. Imagine you are living in 1918.State where you are living and how the war will impact your life. Discuss the pro and cons of the changes this war introduced to society and how you imagine those changes will impact the U.S. in the years to come. This past 1 year, 7 months and 5 days has been awful.
The June 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by the Serbian Black Hand Group, caused Austria-Hungary to declare war on Serbia. As their allies got involved this conflict grew into World War I (WWI). This event wasn’t the real cause of the war, it was just the spark that started it. Most people would say the causes were imperialism, nationalism, alliances and militarism.
Around August 1939 the Second World War had started in Europe. The war started off with plans of Germany invading Poland. At the beginning times, the war was more focused around Europe. In 1941, America got involved with Japan and everything kept spreading. Many countries where involved in this war as well, splitting everyone into two groups, the axis powers and the allies.
Germany was one of the major players in the First World War that started in the year 1914. The Treaty of Versailles, a peace treaty published after the war in 1919, largely blamed Germany for the war, forcing the country to disarm and pay a generous sum of reparation to the victorious side. Many historians still argue over whether this blame was justified or not; while most claim that Germany was the inexcusable cause, some counter that there were other factors to blame, such as Austria-Hungary. I believe that Germany was indeed responsible for WW1, not solely but for the majority of it, because they were what started the war in the first place.
In the end, no was at peace. The war was fought between mostly the European nation, like Britain, France, Russia, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Turkey. It was fought mainly in France, Italy, Russia, and Turkey. This was the “Great War,” a war to end all wars. It was fought through tanks, airplanes, gas, trenches, machine guns, and more.
