Austria: The Cause of World War One

- The nation responsible for the onset of World War I is Austria-Hungary because of the territorial and political stances with Serbia that provoked the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. After Ferdinand's death, Austria-Hungary initiated a call for support to the Germans about the problems in the Balkans, resulting in Germany confirming their assistance by issuing a “Blank Check.” Austria later gave Serbia a list of ultimatums that consisted of extreme demands in hopes of Serbia rejecting it....   [tags: World History ]

World War I And The European Union

- World War one was a result of the growing tension with the European powers. Different states found that it was in their best interest to be the regional hegemon but other European powers wanted to stop any one state from becoming too powerful. The First World War began when a Serbian nationalist assassinated the archduke of Austria-Hungary. Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia and Russia jumped to Serbia’s defense. Russia was the first of many countries to take part in this Great War. All of the countries that joined the war joined because of a sense of allegiance to another country....   [tags: World War I, World War II]

The Extent to which Germany was Responsible for the First World War

- “To w hat extent was Germany responsible for the First World War.” There are many different factors that contributed to the outbreak of WWI. The most important of these are imperialism, the arms race, the alliance system, nationalism and the assassination of the Austrian Arch Duke. Although Germany has a share in the responsibility of these factors, she was definitely not the lone cause.

Factors That Caused World War I

- I will now try to work out which were the most important and relevant causes of the war, which country or countries actually caused World War 1 and whether the long term or the short term causes were more important. Because many of the countries declared war on each other, one country cannot be solely to blame. The disputes between the different countries before and after they joined the alliances were about nationalism. From 1870 to 1914 the French wanted the Alsace Lorraine back. Russia wanted to gain ports on the coast, Serbia wanted independence in the Balkans and Austria-Hungary was worried about nationalism within its empire....   [tags: World War I, Bosnia and Herzegovina, World War II]

Causes of WW1

- Causes of WW1 I think that the First World War was the product of long-standing rivalries rather than a badly mismanaged Balkan Crisis because it was these rivalries that led to the Balkan Crisis. The Balkan Crisis may appear mismanaged because previous crises such as those in Morocco in 1905 and 1911 did not result in war. In the July Crisis Austria-Hungary blamed Serbia for the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (the heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) despite not having conclusive proof....   [tags: World War I History]

- ‘Germany was responsible for the outbreak of World War One’. How far do you agree. World War one has become to be known as “The Great War”. It was known as “The War to end all Wars”. Many people believe Germany was responsible for the outbreak of war in 1914. To solely blame one country or one single act for the cause of World War One is wrong as there are more than one country involved and more than one event that caused World War One. Even if Germany was responsible for the war the other major powers should take some blame, as they did nothing to prevent the war but fuel it....   [tags: essays research papers fc]
