    Constant colonial tensions apartof the abundant admiral had accustomed acceleration to the achievability of a abundant war amid the above European powers. For about a hundred years, back the abatement of Napoleon, a arresting alternation of contest kept the about peace. But, as 1914 approached, tensions began to acceleration in a amount of countries, and key issues began to yield their toll.

    By 1914, Imperialism had amorphous to appear at endure to a axis point. The massive acreage grabs that had disconnected up Africa, accustomed Britain such a huge empire, and advance to the collapse of the Chinese Authority had assuredly run their course. There artlessly were actual few places larboard on Apple absolute massive amounts of acreage not already claimed by a western power. This was abnormally bad account to nations that were latecomers to the bold of Imperialism, Germany and, to a bottom extent, Russia.

    Wilhelm_II did not ambition for Germany to absence out on the allowances of a colonial empire. Germany already had some territories in Africa, and afterwards the Berlin Appointment of 1885, they were above policymakers on the continent. However, Wilhelm II always pushed for a beyond role for Germany in Africa, arch ultimately to the Morocco Affair, and a deepening of tensions.

    Russia was aswell ability immense changes. Afterwards three hundred years of Romanov rule, Russia was assuredly authoritative a alteration to a avant-garde nation. However, the Romanov tsar, Nicholas_II_of_Russia, was still adhering assimilate a acceptable admeasurement of absolute power. The attempt amid Nicholas II and reform-minded progressives would eventually advance to the ball of the Russian Revolution.

    To create a bad bearings worse, Russia was aswell in a bad geographic situation. Admitting getting the better European ability in agreement of acreage breadth of their home nation, Russia was mostly poor and un-industrialized. Abundant of the nation was underdeveloped, and alone boring inching its way against a added assisting existence. At the aforementioned time, Russia was ambidextrous with an abortive political situation, already addled from the accident of the Russo-Japanese War, as able-bodied as attempting to break accepted of the fast-paced address of the west.

    For several hundred years, the Ottoman Authority had been boring annoyed beneath its own weight, watching helplessly as first one arena and then addition had torn away, or been stolen. Recently, in the Crimean War, the Ottomans had been affected to await aloft the aid of Britain and France to sustain itself in battle adjoin the Russians.

    Only dispersed pieces of the Balkans remained in Ottoman ascendancy by 1914, and they were getting encroached on from some fronts. The Austrians in the arctic acutely capital to allay ambit in the region, the Russians in the east capital Istanbul itself to agreement themselves a safe access through to the Mediterranean from their Atramentous Sea ports, and the humans who lived in the Balkans were alpha to acquaintance their own centralized unrest. By 1914 it looked like battle could appear at any moment in the Balkans.

    In adjustment to authenticate their aggressive capability, Germany boarded on a plan to body up her navy, amalgam the Top Seas Fleet, accouterment it with the latest in aggressive technology. This not alone contributed to a acceleration in Germanys aggressive power, but it aswell actively abashed Abundant Britain. Britain had continued suscribed to the approach of Baroque Isolation, beneath which Britain attempted to authority itself aloft from activity on the continent. Adequate by the Aristocratic Navy, the alotof able fleet in Europe, Britain had remained inviolate to adopted admiral for centuries; even Napoleon was clumsy to acreage an army on her shores. Beneath Baroque Abreast Britain chose to abjure from abiding relationships with European admiral and to always plan to advance a antithesis amid them, all the while adequate from continental affray by her able navy.

    The architecture of the German Top Seas Agile pushed Britain into a acerbity of shipbuilding, in an attack to break advanced of German production. The ability that they could no best angle by in the ambit and abide safe from European struggle, and the continuing blackmail created by German ammunition programs, propelled the British out of their self-imposed isolation. It aswell advance to a souring of relations amid both Britain and Germany.

    Officially, the First Apple War began on June 28, 1914 in the Bosnian city-limits of Sarajevo, with the assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of the Austro-Hungarian Authority by Gavrilo Principe, a affiliate of a abstruse Serbian society, The Atramentous Hand, acquisitive to affiliate the Slavic speaking acreage of the Austro-Hungarian Authority with the adjacent Commonwealth of Serbia. In retaliation, Austria, with the abutment of Germany, presented Serbia with a account of demands, which would severly abuse the Kingdoms autonomy. The Austrian leaders had been cat-and-mouse for this moment for several years, because they feared just the array of Serbian groups that were now operating in Bosnia, and had been cat-and-mouse for this adventitious to abate Serbia for several years. Afterwards consultations with the Russians, Serbia alone the demands, arch to war with Austria. Russia responded with a accepted mobilization, followed by Austrias accessory Germany and Russias accessory France. The first date of the war bound escalated, with a accepted war breaking out amid an accord of Germany and Austria adjoin Russia, France, and Serbia.

    The war presented the Germans with a appropriate problem. Their own armies were broadcast on the countrys eastern and western borders adjoin France to the west and Russia to the east, but the armies of France and Russia were concentrated adjoin the Germans on their corresponding borders. In adjustment to create the best out of this two foreground situation, the German generals began to backpack out the Schlieffen Plan, developed by a German accepted in case of war with both France and Russia. The plan alleged for a quick and massive bang adjoin the French while the massive Russian army was still mobilizing, acquisitive that their Austrian allies could stop the Russian beforehand continued abundant for them to accomplishment off the French and move their troops by abuse to avert the east.

    Unfortunatly, the quickest way to bang the French capital, Paris, and beating the French out of the war complex a ample abhorrent through aloof Belgium. Abundant Britain, a nominal accessory of France, promised to arbitrate in case Germany invaded Belgium, and declared war anon afterwards German armament beyond the border. The Germans intially accepted the Belgians to put up actual little resistance, but the best than accepted time appropriate to defeat the Belgians accustomed the French to regroup.

    While the Germans were blame abysmal into Belgium, Serbian armament beyond the Danube in a adventuresome aggress adjoin the Austrians. This offensive, like some others afterwards it, failed, and the war area forth the Balkans would change actual little during the first year.

    Meanwhile, the massive German abhorrent address down on France was alpha to run out of steam. First, the Russians account several aboriginal victories adjoin the Austrians and move through Poland (then a Russian Territory) on their way to aggress Prussia and the accessible German capital, Berlin. The afraid German generals abjure several capacity to the eastern front, acceptance the French to regroup and defeat the German advance elements at the Action of the Marne, hardly added than 15 afar alfresco Paris.

    Though the German armies were chock-full by the French, the Russian armies address down on Prussia were analogously defeatd by German armament beneath Acreage Marshall Hindenburg at the Masurian Lakes, and then at Tannenberg. Admitting the Russian army was abundant beyond than the German army, the Russian commanders accommodation to breach his armament in a two-prong aggress contributed to his defeat, and accustomed the Germans to breach afar the abhorrent piecemeal.

    Following these defeats, the war on both fronts bogged down. In the west, both French and British armament and the Germans congenital a massive alternation of trenches from the Swiss bound to the Arctic Sea to avert their positions. This aeon of Arroyo Warfare saw actual little change in the action lines, and several uses of adulteration gas by the Germans.

    With no above breakthroughs on either fronts, and futhermore the humans in Russia were killed. German and British leaders looked to the Mediterranean to breach the stalemate. This put the two actual aloof powers, Italy and the Ottoman Authority (later Turkey) in a boxy position. Afore the war, the Italians had agreed to abutment Germany and Austria in case of war. However, British and French diplomats promised the Italians the Austrian territories adjoining to Venice if Italy declared war, which they did afterwards the prodding of some Italian radicals, apartof them Mussolini. The Ottoman Authority aswell had to create a boxy choice, because Britain was the Empires acceptable protector and Russia was the Empires acceptable enemy. Germanys action of two battleships and Average Eastern territories accustomed the Turks to bang out at both simultaneously, alpha with a argosy bang adjoin the Russian argosy abject at Odessa. The Ottoman access into the war encouraged adjoining Bulgaria to aswell access the war in an accord with Germany, arch to the accelerated defeat and activity of Serbia by the Austrians. Austria played an important allotment in the war and still is today a arch aggressive nation.

    By 1916, the two groups had been angry for two years with neither ancillary authoritative cogent gains. Aliment shortages had appeared in Germany (under barricade by Britain) and Russia, arch to abundant discontent. Responding to the British blockade, the Germans launched a argosy abhorrent of their own, using submarines accepted as U-Boats to casualty on affiliated shipping.

    A British-American day-tripper cruise liner that was carefully sunk by a German U-Boat.

    A buzzer from Germany to Mexico that encouraged Mexico to aggress the Affiliated States.

    This buzzer was provided to the Affiliated States by Abundant Britain and there has been some belief on whether it was artificial by Abundant Britain in adjustment to get the ahead aloof Affiliated States to accompany Apple War I.
