Title: Review Game

Review Game
  • World War I

Kaiser Wilhelm II
  • This was the strategy used by the Germans at the
    beginning of the war to prevent fighting in a
    conflict with two fronts. It included sweeping
    west through Belgium and in to France to catch
    the French off-guard and defeat them quickly. It
    was unsuccessful.

The Schlieffen Plan
  • The Unification of Germany and Italy, the Black
    Hand and Greater Serbia, and irredentism in
    France and Italy are all examples of this major
    long-term cause of the Great War.

  • What group of people were systematically
    massacred by the Ottoman Empire during the First
    World War?

  • This long-term cause of the Great War is
    demonstrated by the scramble for Africa, the
    carving of spheres of influence in China and
    other European colonization across the globe.

  • This United States President won a second term on
    the slogan He kept us out of war and is
    considered to be a leading intellectual of the
    Progressive Era.

Woodrow Wilson
  • What is the term used to describe a war in which
    nearly all aspects of life are affected for all
    citizens and the role of government changes to
    exert greater control over the economy and public
    perception of the war?

Total war
  • This campaign was waged by the Allies to try and
    gain access to the Black Sea and take
    Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman
    empire. It involved many troops from Australia
    and New Zealand and was unsuccessful.

Gallipoli Campaign
  • This major long-term cause of the war lead to the
    domino effect after the assassination of Archduke
    Ferdinand. The Triple Entente between France,
    Russia and Great Britain is an example of it.

Alliance System
  • This is the name used for the US agenda at the
    Paris Peace Negotiations, written by Woodrow
    Wilson. Only three of his suggestions would be
    incorporated in to the Treaty of Versailles.

14 Points
  • This US statesman and avowed isolationist opposed
    Woodrow Wilsons 14 Points and was influential in
    the US rejection of the Treaty of Versailles.

Henry Cabot Lodge
  • The Great War is considered this type of war
    because over 30 nations declared war, more were
    indirectly affected, and at least one nation in
    every continent was involved.

World war
  • This is the German word for the unification of
    Germany and Austria that was forbidden by the
    Versailles Treaty.

  • The sinking of this British passenger liner in
    1914 by the Germans, resulting in 128 American
    deaths would later be used as a rallying cry to
    gain support for the US entering WWI.

The lusitania
  • He was the Czar of Russia at the outbreak of the
    Great War and a cousin of Kaiser Wilhelm II, but
    would eventually abdicate and be executed in 1917.

Nicholas II
  • This type of warfare was not invented during the
    Great War, but was used on an unprecedented
    scale. It created areas called No mans land
    and lead to stalemate on the Western Front.

Trench Warfare
  • This reaction in Germany to the their defeat,
    called Dolchstosslegende in German, attributed
    Germanys failure to domestic saboteurs instead
    of a military defeat. It will later become a
    part of the Nazi platform.

Stab in the Back Legend
  • This note from the German Foreign Secretary for
    the President of Mexico suggested that Mexico
    should declare war against the United States. It
    was intercepted by the US and is a major cause
    for the US entering in to the Great War.

Zimmerman Note
  • This type of conflict is usually caused by trench
    warfare and stalemate, and involves both sides
    trying to outlast the other as they run out of
    soldiers and resources. In other words, each
    side is trying to be the last man standing
    instead of gaining tactical advantage.

War of Attrition
  • In this 1916 battle, an example of a war of
    attrition, the Germans attempted to Bleed
    France white. It becomes a symbol of French

Battle of Verdun
  • This heir to the Austrian imperial throne and his
    wife Sofie were assassinated in Sarajevo, Bosnia
    by a 19-year-old member of the Serbian
    nationalist group The Black Hand in 1914.

Archduke Ferdinand
  • This man commanded the US forces in World War I.
    His nickname was Black Jack.

General J.J. Pershing
  • This man assassinated the Archduke Franz
    Ferdinand on a nationalistic Serbian holiday to
    demonstrate contempt for Austrian imperial rule
    of Slavic people in the Balkans.

Gavrilo Princip
  • This government tactic is the use of patriotic
    media to sway public opinion, control information
    and perceptions and gather support for the war.
    It was used by both sides during the Great War.

  • This system of government all but collapses in
    Europe as a result of the Great War. The near
    end of this system is considered a major
    political consequence of the war.

  • This country leaves the war due to revolution and
    civil war in 1917 when the Bolsheviks take
    political control.

  • This French Prime Minister, nicknamed Le tigre
    or the tiger, was the representative to Paris
    Peace Negotiations that most aggressively pushed
    his countrys agenda of harsh terms on the German

  • This consequence of the Treaty of Versailles was
    a precursor to the present-day United Nations and
    was Woodrow Wilsons most important aim in his 14
    points. Germany and the United States will not
    become members of this group.

The League of Nations
  • This is the idea that a country has unredeemed
    territory, or land that had once belonged to
    them, and should once again belong to them. For
    example, France thought of Alsace-Lorraine as
    unredeemed territory after Germany took it in the
    Franco-Prussian War. Trieste, Istria and Gorizia
    were all a part of Italian unredeemed territory.

  • Who was the proud, militaristic, emotional, and
    inconsistent Emperor of Germany that was related
    to many of the monarchs in Europe and offered a
    blank cheque to Austria?
