Several factors prompted this decline such as: several economic problems, the rise of other trade routes, the European hunger for expansion, and weakness in the Ottoman government Furthermore, the Ottoman Empire was both politically and militarily strong, yet, it was too traditional and could not keep up with worldwide changes and modernity through time. Europe and the West were rapidly moving forward innovatively while the Ottomans stayed in their place for too long. All these problems led to the empire being less centralized in Europe. Simply, the Great Powers of Europe took advantage of this situation and allied to completely end the rule of Ottomans. To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point.

Holton alludes to many other instances where the colonists wanted to expand but was consistently overlooked by the imperial government. The Indians caused the British to fear another war. Essentially, Holton makes it seem like the British were more on the side of the Indians then they were for their own colonists.
Historians agree that World War I was a major war that still impacts countries all over the globe. It all started when central countries in Europe, such as Germany, Britain, and France wanted to conquer more colonies and display their powerful military strength. While these countries intended to end the war quickly, the war lasted for four arduous years from 1914 to 1918. In addition, many individuals were pressured to take part in the war because they were forced to believe that they would be considered a disgrace if they did not. All Quiet on the Western Front, a novel written by Erich Maria Remarque, recounts the experiences of a German soldier named Paul Baumer who was persuaded to fight during the four years of the war.

Militaries were different, cultural outlook was different; these were things that ultimately would affect each empire in the end. Each empire was established in their respective areas for approximately four-hundred years, having around fifty million residents. While the Han Dynasty was based off of the previous dynasties it primarily resembled the Confucian values talked about in the Analects. Pax Romana on the other hand had to do with establishing a sound government that could not be broken. Basically, Rome needed to fix its flaws.

They threatened world peace and became an important factor of the outbreak of the WW2. Fascism and Nazism have many things similar, however, there are also some considerable differences between them. Concerning the background, both Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany rose because people were discontented with the weak democratic governments at that time and strongly felt the Paris Peace Settlement unfair. Italians were not satisfied with the limited reward granted to them after the WW1 compared to their huge contribution (i.e. the Italian government had made huge military expenditure and the total cost of the war is 148,000 million lire, twice more than the total sum expenditure of all Italian government for 1861 to 1913) (Lee, 2000).
