World War I started in 1941 after the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. There were many other reasons like nationalism and the increase of military that caused the war. There were two major alliances at this time, the Central Powers, which consisted of Germany, Ottoman Empire, and Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The second alliance was called the Allied Powers, they had France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy, and United States. There were other countries in these groups, but did not have much involvement. To end this war there was a treaty signed which had a lot to do with the up bring of World War II, The Treaty of Versailles stated that Germany was the country to blame for the war and they were forced to pay for the damages of the
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.
World War 1 started in 1914 and went through 4 years and ended in the year 1918. The war started out with an assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Austria then declared war on Serbia and Serbia had Russia as its allies. Russia threatened Austria then Austria told Germany the problem and Germany declared war on Russia and its ally which was France. Germany went into Belgium and then Britain entered the war on the Russian side.
The Treaty of Versailles The Treaty of Versailles was a treaty that Great Britain, France, the United States, and Germany signed in hopes to end all war. However, the Treaty of Versailles did the opposite and caused WWII by angering Germany and making them pay war reparations. The treaty angered many germans by depriving them of their land. This is shown in Map of Germany in document A, Germany lost parts of Southern Germany, the Polish Corridor, East Prussia, and Northern parts near Denmark. This act prompted Germany to take their land back in means of war.
Many factors played into the start of World War I like nationalism, the arms race, the lack of balance of power, Sebians assassinating the Archduke of Austria-Hungary, and alliances, but there is one big cause you can argue that started the war. Tension between and within countries caused leaders of the countries and groups to spark rebellions of the groups, and one thing after another a World War was on their hands. Germany's tensions between France and Russia started alliances. Serbia had sparked the first rebellion by trying to gain independence from the mother country Austria. Europe was thought to be in a strong position, but at the end of 1918 the position was reduced.
After the end of the first World War (1914-1918), Germany and its citizens were to take the blame for the war. A document known as the “Treaty of Versailles” explained the actions and reparations Germany had to take in order to pay for the war damage and casualties. A higher power known as Hitler rose to power after recognizing the harmful effects of the treaty and fueling the hope and pride of Germans. The Treaty of Versailles contributed to the beginning of WWII because Germany lost a lot of land and resources, Germany’s army was diminished to almost none, and Germany finally recognized the extent of the harsh treatment in the treaty. With the introduction of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was forced to give up a lot of its land and territory.
World War I was caused by the flawed alliance system between the Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria, and Italy) and the Triple Entente (Britain, France, and Russia). The people’s nationalistic feelings fueled the war because they did not want their country’s image ruined. In Europe, the nations had an uneven division of colonies which caused a desire to weaken other countries through a world war.
The alliances of the Triple Alliance and Triple Entente set the stage for the events of WW1 and ultimately the blame for the war. WW1 was a global conflict that lasted from 1914 to 1918. It was the first major international war that involved the countries of Europe, North America, Russia, the Middle East and parts of Asia. In 1917 the European allies consisted of the Triple Alliance and Triple Entente. In the triple Alliances there was Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy.
World War 1 began with Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia due to a conflict about murder of members of the royal family in Austria-Hungary. Serbia and Austria-Hungary both had different allies that joined the war shortly after. France, Russia, Britain and Canada joined Serbia in the war, and Germany joined Austria-Hungary. The United States declared that they would remain neutral in the war, a decision that most Americans supported.
World War I, the Great War, took place from June 28, 1914 until November 11, 1918. The Great War began after several countries declared war on each other. There were four fronts: Eastern front, Western front, Atlantic front, and Middle Eastern front. All the actions that took place in each front all led to the armistice being signed on the eleventh of November. World War I started as mainly a European conflict seeing as most allies originated from countries in Europe and Europe had most of the power, but in the end it expanded to beyond Europe as outside countries were brought into the conflict for multiple reasons.
The Great War often referred to as World War I was a worldwide battle that lasted from 1914 to 1918. Imperialism was the motivating factor that sparked wars between nations. The Central Powers (mainly Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey) and the Allies engaged in combat (primarily consisting of France, Great Britain, Italy, Russia, Serbia, the United States, and Japan). Up until 1917, when it formally declared war on Germany, the United States remained neutral in the fight. However, the United States military and financial support of the Allies' war effort changed the course of the conflict and ultimately resulted in the Central Powers' defeat.
World War 1 was an atrocious war that caused millions of deaths and hundreds of billions of dollars in reparations. World War 1 lasted from 1914 to 1919 and rudimentarily, was the fight between the Allied powers and the Central powers. The Allied powers consisted of France, Great Britain, Russia, and Belgium while the Central powers consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire. All countries had some participation and damage done throughout World War 1, and the countries who started the war may be obscure. However, there are some countries that can especially be picked out for their contribution and cause for the war.
WW1 is known as the first modern war because it saw the incorporation of mechanical weapons. The Central Powers and Allies both used a variety of weapons such as machine guns, chemical weapons , clothing, biplanes, artillery, tanks, grenades, and rifles. These weapons were state of the art for the early 20th century. These weapons caused casualties to skyrocket as the Allies and the Central Powers were in a stalemate.
After millions of deaths occurred during World War I, a peace treaty known as the Treaty of Versailles was created to maintain peace as well as prevent war; however, coincedently, the same treaty that was made to sustain peace helped prompt the start of yet another bloody war known as World War II. During the end of World War I, Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles as punishment for Germany and her allies being the aggressors of the war. Reparations, the War Guilt Clause, territorial loss, and restricted military were all factors as to how the Treaty of Versailles helped trigger World War II. War reparations were payments that Germany were required to pay as punishment to World War 1. Document C displays how Germany was set
grow in both military and economic status. World War 1 began in 1914 in Sarajevo, Bosnia which was ruled by Europe. The background behind the war involved five major things. It involved imperialism and competition, disputes in Europe, many countries having military alliances, jingoism, and different ideologies about government and economic structure. Austria-Hungary sent its military to Serbia and in result led to Russia declaring war of Austria-Hungary.
In 1914, a war broke out between two alliances: the Central Powers and the Allies. Germany and Austria-Hungary made up the Central Powers, and the Allies consisted of Britain, France, Russia, and the United States. This great battle became known as World War I, an event where millions of people died over a four-year span for an unnecessary cause. In order to gain military power, help allies, and imperialize, these countries used all their reserves and maximized their efforts to win this war. Countries motivated men to join the war with fame and nationalism.
