Transcript of Causes of WWI

By: Tamia, Tanisha, Ben, Corbin Causes of WWI The Beginning (Tamia) Mutual Defense Alliance means that if two or more countries are allied and one was attacked then the other countries were bound to help defend them.
Before World War 1 some allies were Russia and Serbia; Germany and Austria-Hungary; France and Russia; Britain, France and Belgium; Japan and Britain. When one of these countries was attacked the allied country had to enter war to defend. So, when wars began during this time a ripple effect started which resulted in World War. Imperialism is the policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force. Each country wanted the largest portion of another country to control. Not every country could get what they wanted which they did not like. European nations ruled smaller countries which they called colonies. France and Britain owned colonies in Africa and Asia. Militarism means that the army and military forces are given a high profile by the government. The armies in France and Germany doubled between 1870 and 1914. There was a fierce competition between Germany and Britain for mastery of the seas. Militarism Nationalism World War 1 began on July 28th 1914. The top three reasons why the war began was because of Militarism, Imperialism, and Nationalism. Another large reason why World War 1 began is because of Mutual Defense Alliance. Mutual Defense Alliance (Tanisha) Gavrilo Princip Gavrilo Princip a Bosnian terrorist was a cause of the war because he assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand. After the assassination Austria-Hungary fought back. Imperialism (Ben) Nationalism was a long-term cause for WWI. After a previous war that involved Germany they were extremely proud of the military power that they had. The French were embarrassed and felt it was necessary to regain their pride. These feelings led to the massive militarism between the two nations. Nationalism is extreme pride for ones country.
