Austria-Hungary wanted to expand into Serbian lands to counter the Slavs, as well as to secure the Mediterranean against the Russians. The British wanted the Balkans to gain advantages over the Russians. Added to the conflicting European nations, Christians were planning a rebellion to gain their freedom.

Main Causes of World War One Nationalism, Imperialism, Militarism, and Alliances helped to not only begin World War One, but also to propel it forward and fuel the fire that kept the Triple Alliance and the Triple Entente, later referred to as the Central Powers and the Allies, in ongoing battles. Several events went down in order to instigate the beginning of this war, including the demands Austria-Hungary made of Serbia, the steadily increasing prices of war, and the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand which finally pushed it over the edge and was the leading cause in the outbreak of World War One. Even though there were many other causes, Nationalism, Imperialism, Militarism, and Alliances were definitely the main leading causes. Nationalism was only one of the four main motives that helped World War One begin. The document reprinted from “The Origins of the First World War” by James Joll states, “Our whole race must stand together to halt the onslaught of these aliens from the North.” Colonel Dimtrevic was referring to Slavic people when talking about the whole “race”.

Also, had Europe left the Americas alone, the world would be more diverse and generally different. Being the superpower that the U.S. is, it affects the world greatly having influenced wars, started wars, ended wars, and planted the roots of hatred in many different places. It is difficult to argue whether the U.S. has had a more positive or more negative impact on the world. However, it is clear the U.S. and all the countries of the Americas are built upon the massacre of millions of natives, many who had wished the Europeans no harm.
It could be said that every European country involved was partially to blame. Each country, at the turn of the twentieth century, built up their militaries and raced with each other for colonial power. Each country made poltical and military alliances with others and were expected to uphold those promises when war began. Many countries went to war to achieve something for themselves. While Germany and Austria-Hungary are easily blamed for the war because of their pro-war ideals and actions, no country in Europe can escape the blame for a war that lasted much longer than a couple weeks and caused the loss of so much
They all jumped in to help their friends that were pointing a finger at somebody else. The war could’ve just been a spat between Austria-Hungary and Serbia if Russia hadn’t been so eager to protect the other countries, like Serbia, they had an ethnic tie with. Although there are many possible reasons for the war, militarism, imperialism, and alliances are the main three with alliances being the most main reason. Militarism and imperialism riled up the countries, making them angry and afraid, but alliances really pushed the countries over the edge into the war. It all just piled up into one big, bad heap of hatred that spurred the countries
Many leaders throughout history have tried to gain as much power as they possibly could, not stopping until they had absolute power over an empire. This may even mean killing your own family and friends to obtain power. There has been few rulers who have been able to successfully rule as an autocrat and even fewer leaders being able to keep their entire empire on their side. If you proved to be an unsuccessful ruler, and the empire you are ruling does not like you, their is a good chance you will magically disappear leaving your family to wonder if you had really died of a “hemorrhoid”.

Who will decide that the public’s demand that the president and the government act to keep them safe is now excessive? If security requires America to shape the world by its direct military efforts, how
This was because Germany felt as if France always interfered with everything they did and always stopped them from reaching their goal. In order to make France stop doing this, the Germans created the Triple Alliance in 1882 with Italy and Austria-Hungary. Germany’s main goal was to make France feel defenseless and threatened by the alliance but it also caused a lot of other nations feel threatened too. This then caused the formation of the Triple Entente which was an alliance between France, Britain, and Russia. This is significant to the start of World War 1 because the alliance that were created cause tensions to rise in Europe but it also caused the chances of a World war to highly increase.
Any survivors were forced to live in fear of others coming from Europe and killing them with manufactured weaponry. Though they once felt powerful as a group, they knew there could be many other much stronger civilizations further away to be fearful of. But there was one other factor that resulted in the Spaniards’’ victory over the Aztecs. “The natives could do little to stop the invisible warrior that marched alongside the Spaniards - disease.
