World War I Was one of the bloodiest wars ever. World War I was a war fought in Europe between Germany, Russia, France, Great Britain, and the United States and many others. World War I was ultimately started with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary. The indirect causes were more significant to the outbreak of WWI than any direct cause. There are several causes that forced Europe into the “Great War” such as militarism,alliance systems, imperialism,and militarism.
Although their aims were significantly different, both Lloyd George and Clemenceau were aware that because of the United States’ status as an economic superpower, it was likely to become a military one as well in the future. Therefore, in order to avoid angering the U.S. they both supported point XIV of Wilson’s Fourteen Points, creating the League of
France proved to be a major asset; the majority of the countries that helped only did it because of a vendetta over Britain. Document 7 emphasizes the Europeans contributions "Nevertheless, they brought with them professional military and competence that the Continental Army sorely needed. " This means that although American troops lacked the correct skill set the allies managed to give military aid. The French sent over Marquis de Lafayette, an influential nobleman who contributed to training the troops. Along with France Germany also aided in the war by sending Johaan de Kalb and Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben.
In July 28, 1914 to November 11,1918 World War 1 took place where over 17 million lives were lost and over 20 million wounded soldiers. This war was between Britain, France, Russia, Italy and the United States against Germany, and Austria-Hungary. The main cause of World War 1 was militarism where many European countries kept increasing their size of their army and navy without a war going on. In the article “What Was the Underlying Cause of World War 1?”
Militarism made nations want to prove their power. Imperialism caused distrust and propaganda. Allies caused nations to fight for dominance. World War I was a big battle and caused nations to spend money and lose millions of people during the
The Great War, or the First World War, was a global fight centered in Europe from 1914 to 1918. This disastrous war was established because of one small, yet direct incident in Austria-Hungary. As well as this , there were indirect incidents leading up to this event that heated the tension between the European countries. The ideas of imperialism, militarism, the Alliance system and nationalism, were the beginning causes; the perfect ingredients to stir up the pressure.
The outbreak of World War I occurred on June 28, 1914 where the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian throne, was assassinated by Gavrilo Princip, a young serbian nationalist. This assassination caused Austria to immediately break relations with Serbia. Meanwhile Russia let the Austrians know that they were backing the Serbs, this then occurred throughout many other countries, and alliances formed starting World War I. 41 million casualties later and the Allies, consisting of the U.S, Britain, and France, were victorious leaving Germany and Austria-Hungary punished severely for this inhuman calamity. Overall the number of casualties and the punishment of Germany in World War I created political, social, and economical

“In Britain and Europe, no event, is less forgotten than World War 1, or ‘The Great War,’ as it was called until 1939” stated by Michael Korda. World War 1 or also known as ‘The Great War’, was an worldwide conflict from 1914 to 1918. A big cause for the war was imperialism. The war was fought between the Central powers ( Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey) and the Allied cause (France, Great Britain, and later U.S.) U.S. remained neutral and sold goods to both sides until 1917, U.S. then later declared war on Germany for many reasons. The contributions from U.S. to the Allied Cause helped turn the course of the war.
World War I was a global war which mainly took place in Europe, involving countries on the Triple Alliance such as Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy and their opposing countries, Russia, France and Great Britain, also known as the Triple Entente. The war took place from 28 July, 1914 until 11 November, 1918, killing more than 9 million combatants and impacting many aspects of a nation. Three of the underlying causes of World War 1 were militarism, alliance systems and nationalism. Militarism is a belief that a country should maintain a strong army which is prepared to defend its country. Countries involved in World War I believed that militarism was important for a country’s pride, success, and honor.
Before World War I, all of Europe in 1914, was tense and like a bomb or a fire was waiting to erupt. Europe had not seen a major war in years, but due to Militarism, Imperialism, Alliances, and Nationalism tensions grew high. Each country was competing to be the best by gaining more territory and growing in their military size and successful economies. World War 1 was waiting to happen and the assassination of the Archduke was the spark that lit Europe up. In All Quiet on the Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque we see the effects of the assassination.
When America joined World War I, due to America’s economic strength, it helped to solve the financial problems of the Allies and hence win the war of attrition by defeating the financially exhausted Germany. However, had America not joined the war, Britain might have succumbed to financial problems. It was known at that time that the British was struggling to keep up with military expenditures, even with booming trade with America. If America had not joined the war, the Allies might have lost the war without the backing of America’s vast economic strength. Before 1917, the neutrality of America was kept stable under the helm of Woodrow Wilson, who was determined to keep America out of the war.
Upon entrance to World War one, the United States was not at an advantage. Though with participation in the war, it progressed the nation’s worldly affairs, bringing on allies and including those cooperatives in the war efforts. This has been considered the nation 's turning point as it paved a path for involvement in our country from the outside of it pushing the U.S. to the rise of power. This passed on a higher level of assurance for the nation 's military and influence throughout the government. Through presidency of Woodrow Wilson, he attempts to prove his ability of neutrality and preparedness.
When the six major powers of Europe get in war, it is not like any other war. Early in 1914, France, Britain and Russia formed the Triple Entente, and declared war against the Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy), which was later known as the World War I. The Cultural Impact of World War 1 during the war and immediately after it, was more significant than any other war. The Horrific and senseless World War I reported around 37,468,904 casualties (Encyclopedia Britannica), this seriously influenced talented artists, writers and musicians around the world who had answered their nations' call to join the Army, or suffered directly from war terrors at their hometowns.
