NATIONALISM

  • If countrys size increases, so does its national
    pride
  • Germany had consisted of 200 states in the
    1700s
  • Nationalism drew them together as one country
  • Serbia was also very nationalistic

ALLIANCES

    many years

MILITARISM
  • Belief in the power of strong armies and navies
  • Building up armaments or weaponry
  • Threatening to use arms and weapons
  • Arms race in Europe
  • Britain was known for its navy
  • Britannia rules the waves

Trigger event
  • June 1914gt Gavrilo Princip assassinated Archduke
    Franz Ferdinand and Archduchess Sophia in
    Sarajevo in Austria-Hungary
  • Gavrilo Princip was a member of the Black Hand, a
    Serbian terrorist group
  • Excellent sale of both horses.
  • The shot heard round the world

Trigger event
  • Austro-Hungarian government blamed Serbia
  • With support of its ally, Germany, delivered an
    ultimatum to Serbia
  • Serbia wouldnt agree to all demands (1), so A-H
    declared war on them
  • Russia and France, sort of allies of Serbia,
    mobilized their forces
  • Germany felt threatened, so ordered them to stop
    doing that. They refused so Germany declared war
    on Russia then France.

And the dominos continue to fall
  • Germany was planning to attack France by going
    through the small neutral country of Belgium.
  • But Britain had signed a treaty with Belgium
    saying they would guarantee their neutrality, so
    when Germany invaded Belgium, Britain declared
    war on Germany
