World War one started on the 28th of July 1914 between two sides; triple alliance and the triple entente. Difference in policies were to blame, although the immediate cause of World War one was the assassination of Austria’s Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
The war started mainly because of four aspects: Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism and Nationalism.One of the most significant causes of World War one was Imperialism, which is where a system where powerful nation rules and exploits one or more colonies.There are two main crisis’s that occurred in Morocco in 19.The main event of Militarism causing World War one was the naval rivalry which was made after 1900. The new Keiser Wilhelm announced his intention to build a bigger German navy than Britain. Germany’s navy was much smaller than Britain’s navy but the British army was put all over its colonies so they can be protected.Germany didn’t have a big Empire like Britain but most people agreed, at the time, they were the best trained and the most powerful.The Triple Entente included Britain, France and Russia which was formed in 1907.Each country was heavily armed and each one had reasons for distrusting each other’s countries in Europe.The problem for Germany was that if the war broke out they would have to fight both Russia and France at the same time. On the other hand, Russia could put millions onto the fields and France had a plan of attack which was to change across the frontier and attack deep into Germany, forcing surrender.Britain and France were working closely together with commanders which meant their military plans were designed to achieve quick victory.By Germany, Britain and France participating in the naval and army race, they were able to build their navies to their top standard, this lead to the next stage which was Alliances, also their navy’s strength, significance in the war and how it would help them win the war. In 1914 the six most powerful countries in Europe divided into two opposing Alliances (sides/teams).The Triple Alliance consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy which was formed in 1882.
