This war is considered to have been a tragedy for many people in Europe as they have never witnessed a war like this before. People believe that the main cause of World War 1 was the assassination of the heir of Austria-Hungary Arch-Duke Franz Ferdinand. However, I believe there’s more to it. There were many other contributions that led to the outbreak of the First World War. In this essay, I’m going to explain why the causes of world war were militarism, imperialism, nationalism, secret alliances, and the assassination of the Arch-Duke Franz Ferdinand.
The Great War started in 1914 and went on until 1919. It was sparked by the assassination of the president of Austria,Franz Ferdinand, in June 1914. Growing forces of nationalism, alliances and economic factors also helped spark WW1. He was murdered by a Serbian nationalist in Bosnia, and a series of threats and mobilization orders followed the incident, leading in August, to the outbreak of World War I, which sparked Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire to run against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan. “The Allies were joined after 1917 by the United States.
He destroyed hundreds of enemy air crafts. Because of this, “Ultersman was nominated for VC for actions in Northern Germany.” His bravery and amazing accomplishments even got the king's attention. When General Ulsterman Robert Blair Mayne or ‘’Paddy’’, passed away, he was remembered by many. His funeral was a mile long. All these actions that he has taken are reasons as to why General Robert Blair Mayne was a true hero from World War II.
This is my decision for the Herero people.” 2 days later, von Trotha wrote to the Chief of Staff: “I believe that this nation as a nation must be exterminated… I prefer for the nation to disappear entirely rather than allow them to infect our troops with their diseases.” After the defeat of the Herero, the Nama rebelled against the Germans, but von Trotha and his troops quickly shut them down. On April 22, 1905 von Trotha sent a message to the Nama, “The Nama who chooses not to surrender and lets himself be seen in the German area will be shot, until all are exterminated. Those who, at the start of the rebellion, committed murder against whites or have commanded that whites be murdered have, by law, forfeited their lives. As for the few not defeated, it will fare with them as it fared with the Herero, who in their blindness also believed that they could make successful war against the powerful German Emperor and the great German people. I ask you, where are the Herero today?” In total around 65,000 Herero, about 80% of the population, and 10,000 Nama, about 50% of the
The killing of the Al-Qaeda leader, which is a Radical Islamic Terrorist Group, founded in the 1980 's by Osama Bin Laden, was a huge justice in the U.S. and other countries. Bin Laden posed a global threat to the countries where Islam is not implemented, he was responsible for the September, 11th attacks back in 2001. He orchestrated it, and had it planned for months, he was planning more attacks on the U.S. after 9/11 as well. ("The World Trade Center History.") The terrorist group Al-Qaeda knew they couldn’t beat the U.S. in a straight up firefight, so they tried to destroy us through economic failure and imposing fear into American lives.
Exchange however, doesn 't only deal with trade. Exchange also relates to the concept of exchanging and sharing ideas and beliefs. Nationalism caught on people actually started to stand up for what they believed in and started to represent their country. I think World War I was fought purely on Nationalism. The people of each country actually wanted to support their country in the war and fought with heart and
The World War I is the most damaging war in the history in which many people were killed, in which Europe is divided into many different countries. It was the war between Central powers Germany, Austria-Hungry and Allies Great Britain, Russia and Italy but also many more countries were involved into the war. World War I bring many outcomes like nationalism and militarism. The advanced technology and many more advanced weapons were used in the war. America’s role in the war was only to export useful weapons, clothes and shoes into the war, but after US merchants was being killed, America enters in the war to support Allies.
After discussing the role of propaganda during the First World War, it is concludable that propaganda had been helpful in mobilising the public for war. Many people, men in particular, on both sides of the war were influenced by propaganda to join to armies. Women and children at home also supported the armies by sacrificing food and working in ammunition factories. Therefore, propaganda can be regarded as important during the time of
His speech was so amazing and he had such great traits that he ended up convincing 120 mutineers to go into battle with him. Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain provoked a decision for the mutineers that they probably would never have done if they didn’t hear his speech. After Chamberlain’s powerful speech he had convinced all but 6 of 120 men to rejoin the battle and fight alongside Chamberlain himself and help out the North in their battle. In the text on page 8 of Killer Angels it states, “ It is the idea that we all have value, you and me, we’re worth something more than the dirt”(Shaara 8). This reveals that all of the mutineers have a purpose no matter where they came from.
I think that the main causes of World War 1 were the assassination o Franz Ferdinand militarism. I think militarism is the most important cause of WW1. Militarism is an important cause because all the countries believed in a strong military so they all tried to increase
That was because the United states were against the use of submarine warfare used by Germany That ment that all the ships would be attacked by Germanys navy.

He will use his power as commander of the armed forces to directly deploy troops onto the terrorist, route them out, and kill them. The option of deploying the armed forces is used to circumvent the requirement of congress to declare war. While, if the president were able to move beyond this action, he will openly declare war on the terrorist and avenge Anderson’s murder with the full support of congress. 2.) The financial system has
Greed that leads the people of Serbia to assassinate Archduke so they could stop his reign and to break Serbia off from the Austro-Hungry empire. Which will result in WW1 shortly after and kill millions in the process of achieving 'everything ' and People who survived this disastrous war will be haunted by the memories of all the deaths for the rest of their lives.
