Archduke Francis Ferdinand President Woodrow Wilson
2,259 wordsIt is thought that this war that is been ongoing for over a year, began with the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand; however, many other reasons led to this war. Some occurring reasons date as far back as the late 1800 's. Nationalism, militarism, imperialism, and the system of alliances were four main factors that pressed the great powers towards this explosive war.

The Paris Peace Treaties
1,644 wordsThe Paris Peace Treaties (1919 - 1920) IB History To the subject and passive onlooker, those meticulous organizers of the Paris Peace Treaties allowed for an unfortunate amount of flaws to enter their task of creating a treaty that could satisfy all of the nations of not only Europe but of the world as well equally. Yet one must attempt to put that passiveness behind and admit that those of the time of post World War I had truly no idea what was to come of their decisions. Thus, the decisions of...

Women And Children Central Powers
514 wordsThe technology and many interweaving alliances of WWI resulted in a war that was pricier and coasted more lives than it should have. And on top of that, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children were mercilessly killed and the boundaries of the land were altered.

Many were killed, land was stolen, land was given back, and new weapons and technologies were put into action. Also, ...
