Poster/Presentation Your group is to prepare a POSTER and PRESENTATION explaining the FOUR MAIN CAUSES of WWI. Poster and presentation demonstrates clear understanding of all MAIN CAUSES Poster includes information from all FIVE documents, and includes at least TWO QUOTATIONS from the primary sources Every group member must speak during the presentation
Imperialism Balance of Power: attempt to keep peace through equality among the world powers – Economic rivalry and rivalry for world influence created serious divisions and mutual suspicions
Militarism Arms build-up – build as many weapons as possible to defend giant empires – Naval Arms Race between Germany and Britain – Overwhelming sense that war is needed = willingness to use those weapons
Nationalism Many national groups did not have their own Nation-State Slavic People of the Balkans (ie. the Serbs) moving towards inependence – Pan-Slavism: Russia also Slavic, promise to support all other Slavs.
Alliances Alliances created to maintain the balance of power – Supposed to be “peace- keeping” alliances – Alliances are strict, basically guarantee any local struggle would become a major war
War 1.Austria invades Serbia 2.Russia backs Serbia, mobilizes for war with Austria and prepares to fight Germany 3.Germany backs Austria, attacks Russia 4.Russia calls on France for help, Germany declares war on France 5.Britain declares war on Germany 6.World War I
“A tiny clipping from a newspaper, mailed without comment from a secret band of freedom fighters in Zagreb, capital of Croatia, to their comrades in Belgrade, was the torch which set the world afire with war in 1914. That bit of paper wrecked old, proud empires. It gave birth to new, free nations.”– reflections of Borijove Jevtic, an assassin of Franz Ferdinand
