The Causes of World War I Few confrontations can come close to the destruction of whole nations and human lives as did World War I. Its arising, although seemingly rapid, came instead from the slow militant actions of European countries and their leaders. In addition, breakdowns in the Alliance System, problems between Imperialist governments, and the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand sparked the flame of an unavoidable war. Many causes of WWI stemmed from the European

Battle at Midway ( June 4-6 1942 ) I know that the Battle at Midway was a important battle in World War II. It was about who controlled the Pacific and if the Japanese could truly be defeated. I want to know what planes were used, how the Japanese were defeated, in detail not just say that they were caught off guard. The sources that I've already looked at are: Victory at Sea (video), V is for Victory (video), conversation between Father and Grandfather. I pla

Well, there were many dissallusions of World War One as defined in "All Quiet", and various other poems such as MCMXIV, How To Die, and The Conscientious Objector.

Some of the other stuff will talk about are the troops and how they were dressed, military operation, and the death tolls of World War 1. The troops had to carry a lot of things. The most general was a rifle, gas mask, and a helmet. Each soldier had to carry 70 poun

The Causes Of World War I June 15, 1998 World War I, like many events in history, occurred in the wake of numerous and equally influential events that led to a single outcome. Yet, there are still ideas that there was one major cause, and other smaller, less important causes. Some historians have argued that imperialism should bear the responsibility, while others claim that nationalism was the cause. And still others say that the alliance system was the reason WWI began, while still, milit

Wen World War I ended on November 11, 1918, peace talks went on for months due to the Allied leaders wanting to punish the enemy and "dividing the spoils of war." A formal agreement to end the war was made and called the Treaty of Versailles. The issue that took the most time were the territorial issues because the empires of Russia, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman, and Germany had collapsed. These fallen empires had to be divided up and America's President Woodrow Wilson, Georges Clemenceau

The first World War was a horrible experience for all sides involved. No one was immune to the effects of this global conflict and each country was affected in various ways. However, one area of relative comparison can be noted in the experiences of the French and German soldiers. In gaining a better understanding of the French experience, Wilfred Owen's Dulce et Decorum Est was particularly useful. Regarding the German soldier's experience, various selections from Erice Maria Remarque's A

Twenty - eight of these nations, known as the Allies and the Associated Powers, and including Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, and the United States, opposed the coalition known as th
