  1. 1. One cause of world war 1 was militarism. Militarism is a nation rapidly building up their military.
  2. 2. Another cause for war was imperialism. Imperialism sparked competition between the countries.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. 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.

  8. 8. Germany promised in the Sussex pledge not to sink merchant ships without warning them first, an d rescuing passengers.
  9. 9. 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.
