THE ALLIANCE SYSTEM

Alliances
  • Alliances are like friendships between nations
  • These can change over time

    of conflict
  • Before WW1, the nations of Europe formed alliances

Alliance One 1879
  • Germany allied with Austria in in 1879
  • Three years later, Italy joined
  • This was called the TRIPLE ALLIANCE

Alliance Two- 1892
  • France and Russia feared that they could be
    attacked by the Triple Alliance
  • They agreed in 1892 to help each other out if
    either was attacked

5
Alliance Three- 1904
  • Britain became worried because Germany was
    becoming so powerful
  • Britain had no Allies because she was building
    her empire
  • Britain decided to make an agreement with France
  • This was the ENTENTE CORDIALE

Alliance four 1907
  • Britain then made a similar agreement with Russia
  • Russia was already in alliance with France
  • This was called the TRIPLE ENTENTE
