On july 28,1914 world war 1 began.what had started this big war was the assassination of the archduke. For many people this war was known as the first war or the war to end all wars. World war 1 was when Great Britain, France, Russia, Belgium, Italy, Japan, the United States, and other allies defeated Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey, and Bulgaria. Between 1914 and 1918 15 million soldiers were killed and 20 million were wounded. The conditions were very crucial for the soldiers at war and their families at home.
The First World War began in 1914, also known as World War I. A european war in which an alliance including Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, and the United states defeated the alliance of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey, and Bulgaria. It was believed that the fighting would be over quickly but sadly the war lasted 4 years (from August 1st, 1914 to November 11th, 1918. It soon became clear that the fighting would continue for a long time and that it would result in massive casualties. Although the United States attempted to avoid involvement in the war. Finally by 1917 they joined the Allied Powers.
World War I (WWI) had many main events from 1914 – 1918. It was known as the Great War and the war to end all wars. It also introduced us to many new technology to including Barbed wire, machine guns, artillery, poison gas, airships, aircraft 's, new naval vessels and tanks. All these wartime machines and equipment resulted in unprecedented carnage and destruction, with more than 9 million soldiers killed by the end of the war. This First World War or the Great War, was a global war centered in Europe. This global conflict pitted 2 groups against each other “The Allied Powers” and “The Central Powers”. The Allied Powers was made up of Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and The United States. Important people that were known for the Allied Powers were Herbert Henry Asquith, Prime Minister (UK), Woodrow Wilson (U.S. President), Aristide Briand, Prime Minister (France), and Prime Minister (France).

The first world war was one of the most brutal and remorseless events in history; ‘the global conflict that defined a century’. Over nine million soldiers and a large amount of innocent civilians lost their lives. Empires crumbled, revolution engulfed Russia and America rose to become a dominant world power. Huge armies deployed new weapons of devastating effect from rifles and pistols to torpedoes and flame throwers. These weapons were used not only in the trenches but by tanks too. This was an advantage to those who were able to access such machinery as they could easily launch bullets and missiles at nearby enemy bases. The downfall of the tank was the fact it was unable to cross the trenches. Tanks were not the only pieces of equipment that could access this machinery but U boats and planes too. The British carried ‘bolt action rifles’ in which fired 15 rounds per minute at a minimum range of 1,400 metres away. This allowed the British to take out foes at a far greater range. By using machinery in which rules out the need for getting up close to the enemy was a great advantage during world war one. Soldiers ran from trench to trench attacking with all that they had. This resulted in a massacre as the soldiers running toward the trenches were shot down. Machinery such as machine guns and heavy artillery were the weapons used in the trenches. In modern day society, machine guns are the main weapons used by soldiers. This wasn’t the case around the 1914s. They took four
The great war also known as World War I was a huge difference in how previous wars were fought. Previous wars were fought in a short time and had small armies. Wars fought before World War I did not prepare soldiers for what was coming. The start of World War I was different from previous wars from the very start. The start of World War I began with an assassination. This war was the first war to use new vehicles and weapons that hadn’t been used before this war. The invention of the plane made it able for planes to be used as a gun ship, light bomber, and heavy bomber. In WWI, a total of 124 different planes were used. Another vehicle that was used at first called the land ship, but then later was called the tank. Seventeen tanks were used

The Great War also considered to be World War I, although not initially named that due to not knowing that there would have been a second one.

With the invention of new weapons changing the battlefield this war caused destruction unseen by Europe. Germany was the first to attack, using the Schlieffen plan to take out France. Excepting to be home by Christmas then go over to Russia, Germany was very wrong. This Great War ended on November 11, 1918. The causes of world war 1 was the nationalism of the countries, the alliances between participants, and imperialism through common allies.

In the twentieth century, the means of mass transportation moved out to the ocean. Different stratifications of society were able to travel by the waterways, as in large ships there were the three uniquely designed decks to meet each passengers’ financial expectations and lifestyles. The interior designing of three of The White Star Line ships, The Olympic, The Titanic, and The Britannic were remotely similar as they may have one-upped each other as the previous ship sunk. Harland and Wolff were a

World War II was one of the greatest struggles humanity has ever seen. This Second World War caused many lives to be lost, damaged personal properties and was expensive, for a great deal of money was required to maintain a country’s military strength. The numbers for those that have passed, been wounded or gone missing during the war could never be calculated precisely; though it has been estimated that more than 55 million lives perished. Many historians have traced the causes of World War II to the problems left unsolved by the First World War (1914-1918). World War I and the treaties that ended it also created new political and economic problems. Forceful leaders and dictators in several countries (Germany, Italy, and
