  • Archduke Franz Ferdinand
  • Nationalism
  • My country is better!
  • My country is the best! Fight me!
  • Militarism
  • Let's build up our army! The more the better!
  • Archduke Franz Ferdinand made a trip to Serbia and was assassinated by a Serbian nationalist. This was a trigger to the beginning of World War I.
  • Imperialism
  • Nationalism was a large contributor to the WWI. It stirred up the people and created hatred for other nations while building extreme pride for their nation.
  • Alliance System
  • France, Britain, Russian
  • Germany, Austria-Hungary
  • Nations began to try and increase the size of their militaries so that they would have protection. This created distrust between nations. By 1914, all of Europe had big armies, except for Britain.
  • Treaty of Versailles
  • We need to make Germany pay!
  • Imperialism is the action of the strong dominating the weak. Austria wanted to control of Slavs but the Slavs wanted to control themselves. Austria wanted to dominate them but the Slavs did not want to be controlled but anyone but themselves.
  • Our country is superior and you are under our control!
  • This isn't right!
  • This system was created to PREVENT war, but it did the exact opposite; it brought everyone into the war.
  • The Treaty of Versailles ended the war. This treaty was really all about revenge against Germany for the damage they had caused, and since they lost they would have to meet all of the requirements. This set up a motive for WWI.
