SUMMER ASSIGNMENT #1 Terms for “All Quiet on the Western Front” 1. Three causes of World War 1, are as follows. a. The assassination of the Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand by a Serbian nationalist is probably the most immediate cause of World War 1. When Ferdinand was assassinated, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, who had an alliance with Russia. When Russia began to mobilize its troops to protect Serbia from Austria-Hungary, Germany, (who was allied with Austria-Hungary) declared war on Russia. In turn, France, allied with Russia, joined the war against Germany. When Germany attacked France through Belgium, it drew Britain, allied with France and Belgium, into the war against Germany. After a while, other countries
2.4 Failure of the Alliance system Failure of the Alliance system is one contributing factor to World War 1. Balance of power for the European countries who are passionate to expand powers to foreign countries failed to well managed. As a result of this failure, European countries are divided into two large Triple Alliance powers which led Germany and Austro-Hungary participated in Turkey and Bulgaria, While a Triple Etente. diketua Russia participated by France, Britain, Italy, Serbia, Romania and Greece The formation of this Alliance motive's is to blocking the enemy. This system turns out to have advantages. In 1900 this system is preventing countries in Europe to fight each other. But it could not survive too long. There are some side
Before World War 1 began there were many conflicts between many countries, these conflicts are what eventually led to the war. Nationalism lead to World War 1 for reasons people believed they needed to fight for their country, many people who weren’t fighting wanted to support their soldiers, and many soldiers felt as if they couldn’t back out of the war. Militarism was a cause because each country was building up their weapons and ammunition, as well as building up their armies. Finally Kaiser Wilhelm II was a cause because he had a very strong hate towards Britain, he was a very aggressive leader and he wanted Germany to be the number one country. Nationalism, militarism and Kaiser Wilhelm II were the three main causes of World War 1.
World War one, also known as the “great war” was directly caused by the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. What you may not know is that the root causes to World War one were Nationalism, Militarism, and Alliances. Not only do they have a huge role in starting the war, but also making sure the war was finished.
The fifth cause of World War One was the event of an assassination. Austria Hungary demanded that Serba take action against those responsible for the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. When Serbia failed to meet these demands, Austria Hungary declared war on them. This was one of the main events that kick started World War One because soon after, Germany got involved alongside them, and Serbia’s allies got involved.
What actually started the war was the alliances between countries. Countries in Europe formed alliances with each other (e.g., Russia, Britain, and France in the Triple Entente and Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy in the Triple Alliance) (Doc A). The countries in the Entente all blamed Germany for the war and felt the need to intervene (Doc B). Germany was backing up Austria-Hungary and Russia was backing up Serbia whom were in a spat. Which lead to invasions and more friends of these countries joining the war to aide them.
One underlying cause of World War 1 was the alliance systems. There were two major alliances. The triple entente and the triple alliance (Document A). The triple entente consisted of Russia, United Kingdom, and France. The triple alliance consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and italy. Alliances were quick to support their allies (Document B). Each country had a different point of view of who started the war. So this created a chain reaction (Document B). Those are a few ways alliance systems caused World War 1.
World War 1 was allegedly started by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. This war led to majority of conflicts from July 28, 1914 to November 11,1918. Which was fought against the centrals powers and the allies.World War 1 had source of, Militarism, Allies, and Nationalism.
There were many reasons as to why World War I began. According to Document 2 the event that started World War I was the death of the Archduke of Austria-Hungarian, Franz Ferdinand and his wife in Bashia. The other main causes of World War I was militarism, alliances, imperialism, and nationalism. Militarism was the policy of aggressive preparedness, european nations began arming to protect their assets. Alliances is when European nations formed alliances to create a balance of power throughout Europe. The Triple Alliance was a secret agreement
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.
World War I was one of the goriest wars the world has experienced, with a total mortality count of about 17 million people. The assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand was believed to have triggered the war when a Serbian nationalist, Gavrilo Princip shot him and his wife in
After four years of trying to stay alive and killing people, World War I ended in November 11, 1918. There was an event that triggered the war to break out on June 28, 1914. The event that triggered the war was the assassination of Archduke Franz Fordincrd, that was Austrian.
There were many causes that contributed to World War I like: Imperialism, Militarism, and Alliances. Europeans thought they could make the world their oyster and take over any areas they pleased. Most countries did not appreciate their land being taken from them. For example, Serbia wanted independence from their mother country Austria-Hungary, so a nationalist group called the Black Hand, decided to assassinate the Archduke. If Serbia didn’t assassinate the Archduke of Austria-Hungary the war probably wouldn't have happened at all. Europe’s imperialism is what caused the Great War that went for four long years from 1914 to 1918 and had over 30,000,000 million casualties. The main cause of World War I was Imperialism which caused Alliances and
Section 2: Europe Plunges into War o When Austria declared war, countries reacted by taking quick action and declared war on each other. Other European countries, such as Italy, Britain and Germany, urged Russia and Austria to come to a compromise. But Russia quickly began to mobilize its army along the Austrian-Russian border as well as the German border. Germany quickly declared war on Russia and France, causing Great Britain to declare war on Germany.
Wars and conflicts have been happening around the world since the dawn of human kind. Wars happen due to the nature of political societies and human kind’s willingness to kill. Without the will to kill, there would be no war. In this essay I will be looking into
