Transcript of militarism in WW1

Militarism Militarism is when a country believes they should maintain a strong military capable and prepared to be used aggressively to defend or promote national interests. The European Nations:
Germany, France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire.
Bulgaria and Serbia started the conflict. Italy ended up backing out so the Ottoman Empire stepped in.
Who? Each European nation had a strong policy for their military. Since, they all wanted to have the strongest and the best military competition broke out between the nations. This then caused many other conflicts before the war started. The competition between the nations also caused their relationships with each other to worsen. What?
World War one started in the 1900’s. It ended in November 1918. However, militarism was occurring before the war actually began
When?
World War one took place mainly in Europe.
Great Britain and Germany were both striving for the largest and most powerful navy because of militarism. Where? A rise in nationalism and growing competition for colonies encouraged the build-up of greater weapons and military power. This caused the Arms Race to break out at the border of France and Germany which fortified and militarized. France and Germany's armies had also dramatically increased. All European countries except Great Britain had adopted conscription. Why? www.historyonthenet.com/ww1/causes.htm#militarism
