  • 2 Alliance Systems During The World War
    1,619 words

The feeling of threat leads into invasions then leads into their allies helping and invading and pretty soon, more allies come from both sides. Sooner or later, a vast amount of area, in this case a whole continent, is on a war. Silly as it may sound, this was World War I. We only hope that ...
  • Beginning Of The War
