World War I was a tragic episode in European history. As with most wars, there were some causes that led to this event. A few of these causes were militarism, alliances, and imperialism. The first spark of the war was on June 28, 1914 when the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated by a Serbian nationalist group called the Black Hand. The Austrian leaders demanded an apology from Serbia, they got upset and Russia said they would help Serbia. With no apology and the threat of Russia, on June 28 Austria-Hungary declared war on them; Russia in return declared war on Austria-Hungary. Germany declared war on Russia, France on both Germany and Austria-Hungary. Finally Britain had joined France and Russia, then all of Europe was at war.
The time period between the 1600s and 1700s was a time of a major change in the land of the New World. The colonization of Europeans into the North America had considerable impacts on the Native American lives. European empire at the time, such as the French, England and Spanish empires, often fought against each other for power and control. After the European tried to colonized, the Native American suddenly found themselves dealing with European power politics. The arrival of Europeans into the New World meant new political relationships for both the European and the Native Americans. Each side had thing to gain and loss in this kind of relationship, especially military alliances and new trade goods. European power politics and rivalries were a major factor in the development of European and Native American relations because they created relationships of mutually beneficial relationships of trade and alliances.
The Thirty Years War was an incredibly important event that took place during the 17th century. It caused phenomenally high destruction rates throughout Europe, especially Germany. These battles that make up the Thirty Years Wars were extremely influential towards the European people and governments. The Thirty Years War seemed to have many political factors that fueled its beginning and continuation but the religious factors were more prominent and important to the progression and completion of the war.
Violence escalated when colonists believed that extermination was the only way, to expand their lands, and it was the easiest way to eliminate them for good. Wars against natives were justified because of fear from colonists, wanting to protect themselves; Edward, Waterhouse created A Declaration of the State of the Colony and Affaires in Virginia, Waterhouse believed natives wanted to exterminate them, therefore an attack would be relevant to stop them. Along with finding a justification as to why it was okay attack natives in a brutal way, new war fighting styles were introduced the colonial officials. Scalp bounties first appeared in the middle of 1670, and this method was used to promote and offer rewards for native scalps; these bounties were rewarded in either monetary value or items needed.
The most important and main points were the alliance system in 1890, militarism, and imperialism before, during, and after the war. Although these three were the starting points of the war, alliances can be seen as the absolute leading cause of World War One.
The post war world ll division impacted many countries all over the world. Everything started when all the parties came together and decided to combine forces and came to an agreement for one purpose. When they reached the purpose the congress party turned brattle field to one question what kind of society do we want to create? This one question created evolution, battle, and a lot of enemies. Often people had different visions, ideas and methods this influenced leaders for many decades and impacted politically and the economic development of these countries.
Alliances were formed with the European countries formed partnerships to protect each other. There were two different alliances, one was the Triple Alliance was between Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy. Then there was the Triple Entente was and alliance between France, United Kingdom, Russia. In the midst of all the war the nations that remained Neutral were Spain, Portugal, Greece, Serbia, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Romania, Bulgaria, Ottoman Empire, and Montenegro (Doc. D). In document E it states that France and Russia have both equal desires to preserve peace, and only want to make sure that they meet the needs for a defensive war. Then in Document G shows a comic of how the different Allies had “ganged up” on Germany and Austria, then there was Italy that had been

The Seven Years’ War, also known as the French and Indian War in the colonies, was the beginning of outward conflict between the British and French over North American colonies. Most Europeans viewed the Indians as a means to get something they wanted; they were pawns during this struggle in North America. During the 18th century, there were many alliances and discord among the Indians and the Europeans. The demise of many alliances was the lack of trust and suspicions of betrayal. The Europeans were a dominating force in the French and Indian War affecting aspects of territory, trade, and government in North America.
The seven years’ war (French and Indian War in the Colonies) put a financial hard ship on the Europeans and the American Colonies because the war was so expensive. The reason the war transpired in America, and took place due to the British thinking the territories and trades were theirs to control because they wanted it all for themselves. This caused the French to try to put a stop to it so they too could gain wealth from the trades that occurred in the Ohio Valley. “The Ohio Valley was important because it provided fur traders access to cities and ports on the East Coast. This business was very profitable. Another desired territory was the Mississippi River Valley, the entry point to the frontier in the west.” (“The French & Indian War,”

During the 18th century there was a fierce competition between the British and the French colonial empires that ultimately led to The Seven Years War. The final result of the conflict favored the English who, nonetheless, were forced to make appeal to the force of the American
