  • Militarism
  • Alliances
  • This country has taken offense of your wrong doing and I am their ally, there will be war!
  • Nationalism
  • I am voting for her because she came from the same country as I did.
  • Militarism was a big cause of the war because it took a long time for each army to build their armies into a certain level of strength and it made it where different places would fight to show their superiority.
  • Imperialism
  • We can gain power if we just show our military power and make deals with those countries to get what we want!!!
  • Alliances were also a big part of the war. Countries kept secret agreements/alliances with other countries which ultimately resulted in all of the countries fighting against each other.
  • Assassination
  • Nationalism also takes time to develop. People have to figure out how to love a country, so this slowly developed into many different arguments.
  • Imperialism is also a big cause in the war because creating influence in a different place such as a country/nation can take a long time which led to competition to gain land in Africa and Asia.
  • Through the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, some people wanted war while others didn't so they made an order to Serbia, but they didn't follow it, so it began a war.
