US History January 16, 2014Mr. Davolt On a half sheet of paper Warm Up: What is militarism? How did it contribute to WWI? Ex. Militarism means _____________. Militarism contributed to WWI by ___________. Learning Target: I know the four main causes of WWI. Success Criteria: I will complete notes on what caused WWI.
Militarism The policy of aggressive military preparedness. Using military power to gain a country’s goals or expand its power.
Alliances An agreement between two or more countries to help each other. It can include military help, money or providing of weapons. – Designed to keep peace in Europe, instead pushed continent towards war – Many Alliances made in secret
Alliances By 1914 all the major powers were linked by a system of alliances. The alliances made it more likely that a war would start. Once started, the alliances made it more likely to spread.
Two Armed Camps! Allied Powers: Central Powers:
Imperialism All the great powers were competing for colonies / territory. The British feared Germany in Africa. The Austrians feared Serbia / Russia in the Balkans
The Crisis 28 June 1914 Heir to Austrian throne Franz Ferdinand visits Sarajevo. Capital of Bosnia, recently grabbed by Austria. Hotbed of Slav nationalism Seal of the Black Hand group
The Crisis “Black Hand” terrorists attack the Arch Duke Bomb attempt fails in morning Gavrilo Princip shoots Archduke and wife in the afternoon. Austrians blame Serbia for supporting terrorists.
The Crisis 3. Austrians, supported by Germany, send Serbia a tough ultimatum. Serbia agrees to all but two terms of the ultimatum. Russia mobilises her troops to support Serbia Germany demands that Russia stands her armies down. Germany declares war on Russia “Demands must be put to Serbia that would be wholly impossible for them to accept …”
Why did Britain get involved? Britain had Ententes with France and Russia. Only “friendly agreements” but French and Russians given impression Britain would fight. The Schlieffen Plan Sir Edward Grey British Foreign Secretary … “There’s some devilry going on in Berlin”
The Schlieffen Plan Germany’s military plan to defeat France and Russia. “Knock out blow” aimed at France first. Avoid French defences by invasion of Belgium. Germans thought Britain would not intervene.
Britain’s Reaction 1838- UK had signed a Treaty to protect Belgium. Britain also scared of Germany controlling Channel ports. Did not want Germany to defeat France and dominate Europe. Britain next? UK issued ultimatum to Germany to withdraw troops from Belgium. War declared August 4 1914

World War I - Trench Warfare Going over the top!
Artillery Launched artillery shells over 15 km that exploded into deadly fragments over enemy positions. British Howitzer
Tanks Tanks developed specifically to end the stalemate on the western front Very unreliable at first and designs varied greatly.
Poison Gas Used in artillery shells- explosion would release gas into trenches. 2 Main types used: Chlorine Gas- destroyed the respiratory organs of its victims and this led to a slow death by asphyxiation. Mustard Gas- caused internal and external bleeding and attacked the bronchial tubes, stripping off the mucous membrane. **Most important piece of equipment was a soldiers gasmask. On average, soldiers exposed to either gas would suffer for 3-5 weeks before finally dying.
Machine Guns & Bolt Action Rifles Machine Guns fired 400 to 600 rounds per minute – Each side set up groups of machine guns along trenches to stop enemy advance Machine Gun Bolt Action Rifle Bolt Action rifles could be shot accurately up to 600 meters Continue
Machine Guns Each had the firepower of approx. 100 rifles. Dramatically increased the number of casualties during WWI
