    1,701 words
    In August a Great War broke out in the center of Europe. Because European powers colonized so much of the world, it became the first World War.

Germany's size was about 209 thousand square miles with around 67 million people in 1914. Germany had an enormous army with over 8.5 million infantry. Germany also had U-b...

  • Country Of Germany For The Great War
    793 words
    It's Germany's Fault?! World War I commenced from many significant events. Murder, militarism, alliances, nationalism, imperialism, predictions, and plans were all key factors in the start of WWI. All of the European countries involved in alliances each had a part to contribute to who-to-blame for beginning the war. War was unavoidable with the way each country was acting based on pre-judgments and precautions. Germany is the country that gets the most blame for starting the Great War for many r...

  • 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...

  • War On Germany
    630 words
    World War I has often been referred to as the "Great War". This is a rather deceiving statement being that over 65 million men fought, and over 37 million men died in a war that lasted 4 years. World War I was, also, referred to as the "War to end all Wars". Yet, 20 years later that statement would no longer be true as WWII erupted in 1939. When WWI ended with no real purpose served, it became apparent that a peace conference needed to occur and that someone had to pay reparations for the damage...

  • War On Germany On 23 August 1914
    806 words
    '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...
  • War On France And Russia
    1,676 words
    It can be said that the First world war was caused by the alliance system, which has a very weak argument, the alliance system had very little to do with the first world war, it did to some extent cause the size of the war, but its argument in my opinion is very weak. Many other causes lean towards the side against the alliance system causing the first world war, which I believe is credible. The alliance system did cause the size of the war as it caused countries to be pulled in. First made in t...

  • Responsibility Of Germany
    1,375 words
    How Far Was Germany Responsible For The Outbreak Of WWI The outbreak of World War One was reliant on a number of factors. These include the alliance system, the sense of nationalism sweeping Europe at the time. The imperial and colonial rivalry resulted in the naval and arms race. When Germany's role in these causes is examined it is possible to come to the conclusion that Germany, whilst not entirely to blame for the out break of World War One, certainly deserves a fair share of responsibility....

  • Germany
    545 words
    Was Germany to blame for World War One? Though Germany turned out to be the Central Power and most involved in the war, there is little or no evidence that the Germans had planned for war. There are several fundamental causes that had brought the world to the brink of war: nationalism, imperialist competition, militarism, and the build up of pre-war alliances. The growing appearance of these factors perhaps inevitably led to what was called the Great War, World War One. Germany had a variety of ...

  • Germany During World War I
    1,373 words
    There is a reason for every war being fought. There is always a guilty party behind occurrence of the war. If that party had not done something to make another mad, the war would have never started. Sometimes it is hard to find the group responsible for this action. Sometimes it is very obvious who is to blame. Germany's offensives started World War I and made more countries join as the war went on. "On June 28, 1914, a Serbian student named Gavril o Prince, who was part of the militant group ca...
