Transcript of WWI

World War One lasted
longer
than anyone expected it to.
It lasted between
1914
and
1918
.
World War 1
The assassination of the Archduke
Franz Ferdinand
of Austria-Hungary was the
spark
that would lead to the start of World War I.
This spark ignited
four
distinct underlying causes that made World War I much
larger
than it could have been.
The four causes were:
Militarism
Alliances
Imperialism
Nationalism
Imperialism
Imperialism is a policy by which
stronger
nations extend their
economic,

political,
or
military
control over
weaker
nations.
During this time period, many nations were creating colonies in places like
Africa
and the
Pacific.
Imperialistic nations take over others for
three
main reasons.
They hope to acquire raw
materials
from new
markets.
They hope to find new markets to
sell
goods and make money.
They hope acquiring new land shows other nations they are
powerful.
Imperialism
Imperialism - a cause of WWI
Germany had fewer colonies than
Britain
and
France
.
It felt it
deserved
more colonies to provide it with
resources
and to buy its goods.
This caused
tension
in
Germany
with France and Britain.
Nationalism
Nationalism is having strong feelings of
pride,

loyalty,
and
protectiveness
toward your own country.
Nationalism - a cause of WWI
Believing your country is the best, can lead to problems.
It can create deep
mistrust
and even
hatred
between nations.
It can set the citizens and leaders of countries
against
one another.
Militarism
Militarism is the policy of
building up
strong
armed
forces to prepare for
war
.
Militarism - a cause of WWI
As each nation built up its military, it led to increased
tension
between them.
When Germany expanded its
navy
, Great Britain felt that its naval
power
was threatened, so it built more ships.
Alliances
An alliance is created to
unite
or form a connection or
relation
between nations.
European powers formed
two
rival alliances:
Triple
Alliance
:
Austria-Hungary
,
Germany
, and
Italy
Triple
Entente
:
Great Britain
,
France
, and
Russia
Members of an alliance
promised
to
support
one another in case of
attack.
Alliances - a cause of WWI
Any crisis involving
one
member of an
alliance
affected that nation’s
allies
.
Any
minor
incident could lead to a general
war
.
