Document A ‘‘European Alliances, 1914’’ shows us the different types of alliances that nations had with each other. Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy were known as the Triple Alliance. There was also the Triple Entente, an alliance between France, Great Britain and Russia. Alliances helped cause the war because nations would be against each other and they would also want to be dominant. Although there were many reasons that caused World War I, Militarism, Imperialism, and Allies were the main factors.
When Franz Ferdinand gets assassinated sparking the concept of war between two countries, different countries come in do to alliances between the countries. The Triple Entente that includes Britain, France and Russia as well as the triple alliance including Austria-Hungary, Italy and Germany. Militarism influenced the population of different countries making the people act out in war. As well as nationalism in different countries making different believes in people and uniting Germany as a country, but each country wanting to be better and more superior than each
Imperialism is more important than the loose alliance and militarism because of the rapid spending of money ong the navy and army, and the different attacking strategies. In conclusion, there are many possible underlying causes of World War I. The loose alliances caused disagreements and unfairness through different countries.
All the alliances were already preparing themselves for a massive war to take over eventually. Serbia, being in an alliance with Russia, was the first to challenge Austria. Serbia wanted to become their own country and not depend on another country but, Austria was not about to let that go easily. Serbia eventually grew this hate between the people of Austria and likewise with the Austrian people. Hate is what ultimately lead to the assassination and what became the beginning of the Great
Why? Because in each country [of Europe] political and military leaders did certain things that led to the mobilization [of troops].” Leaders wanted the best military in Europe, even the world, which meant they tried to beat friends and enemies alike. This made for the means for Europe to break into a world-scale
Although the people during that time period thought that the war was going to end quickly, simply because it was between Austria and Serbia, the war surprisingly included many other strong countries because of nationalism especially regarding the Balkan colonies wanting to be self-governed. But meanwhile, after Austria-Hungary proclaimed war with Serbia, countries from the Triple Entente later joined into war in a matter of time. As shown in Document A: the European Alliances and nations are shown on a map. The nations then started to pick sides. Austria-Hungary and Germany formed the Central Powers
Imperialism was a big impact on the late 1800’s leading into the early 1900’s with counties like the British, Spanish, Russia, and Germany pushing to gain more land in different counties. This would lead to an arms race and the buildup which would lead into World War 1. Many different alliance were made if another country would attack another other countries would help with the fight. This would keep peace till the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.
What was the main cause that started WW1? For many years, this has been a question that many historians have asked themselves. Many of them believe that Germany was the country who started the war and I agree with this. I think that Germany led to the beginning of the war because of many reasons. The German General staff intentionally urged Austria-Hungary to act unreasonably after the assassination of the austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand so that Germany wouldn’t be completely surrounded by its enemies.
Since most of the money was going into the wars there was less money for things that would help uplift our country. All and all the high amounts of deaths after this tremendous attack overall raised insurance prices.
First the assassination of Gavrilo Princip lead to the Great War as it was known at the time. Next when the war developed it changed warfare for the better or worse using tanks planes and toxic gas. Finally it all ended using the the Treaty of Versaille. First, on June 28, 1914, Gavrilo Princip killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and that led to the biggest war the world had ever seen.
Who would’ve thought that millions of men that went to war used to be excited but yet came back home emotionless. In World War One (1914-1918) , also known as the War to End All Wars, was a war that started within European countries. It took place in France, Italy, Russia, and Austria-Hungary and were fought with tanks, airplanes, and more advanced technology. There were three causes of World War One which was Alliances, Imperialism, and Militarism.
Alliances were extensively responsible for increasing tensions between nations. While there were various reasons for the increase in tension between nations, the Alliance system is considered to be the most prominent factor causing tension, which in turn, led to factors such as militarism becoming prevalent. Alliances drew together nations, but while in doing so, caused fear and distrust to prevail among other nations, therefore influencing them into creating their own alliances. When alliances are formed, especially any militaristic or colonial alliance, arms races are created as a byproduct. Arms races cause tension due to the threat of war from apposing sides, which segregates the nations and creates a distinct split in opinions, and thus segregates nations into sides.
