    436 words
    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...

    "Stability " at "user allies" The Transition of German and Hungarian Politics since 1989 There can be little doubt when studying the political transition within Germany and Hungary that since 1989 there has been a change in ideology since the collapse of the communist regime in Eastern Europe and the reunification of East and West Germany. Nevertheless it must be acknowledged that the truly astonishing events of 1989/90, "which even at the beginning of 1989 could not have been predicted, brought...

    "Because That Guy Got Shot" There is a lot of speculation as to which event of the nineteen hundreds led to the out break of World War One. Many people tend to say "Because that guy got shot". Still others have blamed everything from increased Nationalism and Imperialism in Hungary to Militarism in Russia. If one had to answer the question "What was the cause of World War One", the answer would be all of the above, and more. The events from June of 1914 through August of 1914 can be described as...

These colonies funded a great part of the ruling countries' economies and provided foreign markets for European products, and expansion became necessary and de...

    1,116 words
    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 o...
  • Germany And Austria Hungary
    1,275 words
    The first world war had many causes, the historians probably have not yet discovered and discussed all of them so there might be more causes than what we know now. Int his essay I would discuss the main causes of the war-the ones that were discussed in the textbook. In the time before the war's outbreak (before 1914-in the beginning of the century) the world was separated into big empires that had colonies around the world (European countries ruled most of Africa). There were fights and disagree...
  • Austria Hungary And Germany
    297 words
    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 gov...
  • Balkans And Austria Hungary

    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...

    International Tensions between 1871-1914 With some tough footsteps in which to follow, Wilhelm II was led towards a military lifestyle. He surrounded himself with the German military and its militaristic society.

There wasnt much room left for new colonisation, never the less, Wilhelm built up the German military and under the Trip itz Plan, built a naval fleet t...
  • Alliance With Country C

    Pre World War I Europe was known as a "Proud Tower". However due to Nationalism, Militarism, Imperialism, and alliances it would soon fall. It goes back as far back as 1870.

A confederation is a group of states that are loosely joined together and have more power than the government of the whole country. Prussia was the biggest sta...

    Imperialism, World War I and Revolution and Nationalism I) As some of us know what imperialism is, I would like to start you off with a definition for those who may not know what it is or what it means. Imperialism is a policy that one strong nation wants to take over or dominate other countries economic, political, and social forces. The reason is to take over land in all parts of the globe. An example of Imperialism would be India. The British came into India regulating the eastern side of Ind...

    The Causes of World War I What exactly were the causes of World War I Sure, it sounds like a pretty simple question, but its most definitely not a simple answer! There was whole lot more to the start of the war than an Austrian prince being murdered in Serbia, as is what most people think was the whole cause of World War I. Besides, the effects of the war werent just concentrated to a post-war era lasting for a whole generation of Westerners. Nope! The effects of the war were widespread througho...

The "dual alliance" was between Germany and Austria-Hungary. The idea was that if either Germany or Austria-Hungary were attacked by Russia, one would come to the other's aid. This became the triple alli...
