World War 1 Paper 3

1034 words - 5 pages

World War I was a tragic event in history. Many people died both soldiers and civilians. Therefore someone needed to be punished, Germany. With Germany taking the blame in the Treaty of Versailles in section 231, much of their land was taken and the allies had Germany by the throat. Although history cannot be rewritten Germany cannot be still blamed for the events that conspired that lead to World War I. Economic rivalries between countries lead to arms races and contributed greatly to the starting of the war. Alliances and Ententes played a key role in the war, no one could trust each other and this caused a great deal of suspicion.

The first alliance to be created between the Central Powers was the Dual Alliance; this was in between Germany and Austria-Hungary. The alliance entitled one of the two powers to come to the aid of the other if the common enemy, Russia, made a declaration of war, but does not include other countries the country may engage with unless Russia became involved. Although this treaty was signed secretly, most of the European powers were well aware of the general terms of the agreement. This of course caused a great deal of suspicion in between neighbouring countries. With Germany having its own ally, France found it necessary to even out the power by finding itself an ally, Russia. This came to be known as the Franco-Russian Alliance, this agreement entitled each other to mobilize all available troops to aid the other country in case of an encounter between Germany or Austria-Hungary, and later Italy when the Triple Alliance was formed. This Alliance was also to be kept as a secret but tensions were building and rumours were being spread throughout Europe of war. France also sets up an Entente with Britain with the same basic agreements of the Franco-Russian Alliance but it does not bind Britain or France to the agreement. As the tensions built, and countries began to choose sides, the chances of a war not occurring were very slim.
The events that transpired in the year 1914 changed the world forever. The Balkans were colonies of the Austria-Hungarian Empire, and wanted freedom. Since most of the Balkans was of Serbian decent, Russia, who is also of Serbian decent, took the side of the Balkans. When Russia tried to reinforce the Balkan’s idea of freedom, Austria-Hungary immediately called for the aid of their ally, Germany. Russia proved to be an empty threat, politically and economically, because simply were not yet prepared for a war. As time progressed tensions between the Balkans and the...
