World War One
Transcript of World War One
Austro - Hungary marched on Siberia . This was known as the invasion of Siberia. Siberia asked Russia for help. As Russia moved foward on Austro - Hungary, Germany attacked Belgium and Luxembourg before moving towards France. This caused Britain to declare war on Germany.
The Western Front.
As Britain stopped Germany at France, the Germans were pushed out of the country. For next couple of years this border area would be known as the Western front.
June 28th 1914
As Russia attacked Austro - Hungarian troops they were very successful, but when all was going well Germany attacked them. For the course of the war this area would be called the eastern front.
For the past 3 years the Americans had received messages from both the Allies and Central powers. Britain considered America as a "cultural brother", the Americans viewed Germany as a dangerous monarchy. So in 1917 America joined the allies.
After four years of fighting Germany finally gave up. As it was dealing with rebellions. After the Treaty of Versailles was signed the Ottoman and Austro - Hungarian Empires ceased to exist.
After The War
After the war the map of Europe was redrawn. Germany and the allies met for peace terms. Woodrow Wilson wanted fair peace terms, but the allies didn't listen and gave Germany a 80 billion (today half a trillion) dollar debt that took until 2010 to pay off. This drove Germany into poverty, later sparking world war two.
On this date the Austro - Hungarian Heir to the throne was assassinated. Austro - Hungary immediately blamed Siberia.
Japan had donated 10 million dollars and thousands of soldiers but when they tried to speak the other allies (figuratively) slapped them in the face and said no. This angered Japan causing them to later attack the allies in world war two.
