    World War I was ultimately due to German expansion. As Germany's military strength expanded and its ties with Austria-Hungary grew stronger, it became evident that Germany posed a very probably threat to neighboring countries of Russia and France. Britain who had begun to lose grip of much of its territorial grounds in Africa, had also begun to see Germany as a super-power with the potential of mass invasion. Thus, Britain brought itself into the picture by signing the Entente Cordial and joined...

    The causes of W. W. I It is agreed by most that World War One was one of the most devastating events ever to take place on Earth, but the argument of which nation should carry the burden of responsibility continues on. However, many apparent facts show that this Great War would never would have happened had it not been for the actions of Germany and Austria-Hungry. Once the heir to their throne was assassinated, Austria-Hungry looked for no other possibility but war to solve the problem because ...

    The war that would destroy European society had been coming for a long time. The nineteenth century had been an era of great progress, and of turmoil and conflict as well. New nations had been created. The balance of power that existed in 1815, at the end of the era of Napoleon, was disturbed. Adding to the danger was a false sense of security. Local wars had flared up in the nineteenth century, but a major war was regarded as unlikely. Looking back at 1914 today, however, we can see that each ...

    2. ) The War and The Peace Settlement A. ) In my opinion, I personally believe that Austria-Hungary AND Germany are most responsible for causing the war. I believe this to be true because it was Germany who promised to back the Austria-Hungary army and being the enormous and powerful army the German army was, Austria-Hungary felt comfortable and declared war on Serbia. This sparked several events which included the general mobilization of Russia, France and Germany. Few days later, the Russian g...

    War broke in 1914 due to a number of factors, and many of these dated back many years before the war. There were many things that contributed to the final war that was brought on by a certain catalyst. The arms race between Germany and Great Britain, the heated past of Germany and France, the tensions amongst the Balkan states, and between the Balkans and Austria-Hungary were all major contributing factors of the war. The feelings of nationalism in the Balkans increased tensions between them and...

    'Germany was responsible for the outbreak of World War One'. How far do you agree? World War one has become to be known as "The Great War." It was known as "The War to end all Wars." Many people believe Germany was responsible for the outbreak of war in 1914. To solely blame one country or one single act for the cause of World War One is wrong as there are more than one country involved and more than one event that caused World War One. Even if Germany was responsible for the war the other major...

    Between the years of 1890 and 1908 there was a period of relative stability in the Balkan area. Whilst, in this essay, it is my primary objective to look at what factors caused this, it is first important to understand that the climate was only stable in comparison to the years before it when there was great tension, argument and conflict. It would be nave to assume that after 1890 there was none of the aforementioned; the importance of the word relative should not be overlooked. Take, for examp...
