One cause of world war 1 was militarism.
Militarism is a nation rapidly building up their military.
Another cause for war was imperialism. Imperialism
sparked competition between the countries.
The biggest cause of ww1 is alliances because a little conflict
between Austria and Serbia lit a powder keg and the rest of the
continent got into the conflict.
Another cause for the war was nationalism. Nationalism is
pride for your country and wanting your country to be the
best. Some people got way to serious about that.
Problems in the trenches
Problems in the trenches consisted of: mud, rats, it smelled, body
rot, cold, maggots, lice, and disease. One of the toughest challenges
was staying dry.
This is no man’s land, neither side controlled it. In order to get
across this you had to go through barb wire, machine gun fire, and
One side would start artillery about half to an hour before their side would go
over the top. Attacks would usually start at dusk or dawn.
Germany promised in the Sussex pledge not to sink merchant ships without warning
them first, an d rescuing passengers.
The Zimmerman note is a telegram written by a German official. In the telegram the
Germans asked Mexico to attack the U.S. and in return they would get land that they
lost to the U.S.
Germany’s punishment was they had to take full responsibility for the war,
they lost some of their colonies, greatly reduced Germany's armed forces,
and were forced to pay $33 billion (33,000,000,000) to the allies. They
were only able to pay $4.5 billion.
New nations were created after the war was over.
From Russia: Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland
From Austria-Hungary: Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia.
From Ottoman: Divided up to be controlled by allies.
Created the league of nations, and organization of nations established at end of
world war 1 to maintain stability.
