Causes of WWI Nationalism Militarism Imperialist Competition Economic Necessity The World Before World War I 1914 The world before World War I was just beginning to fully grasp the effects of globalization and technology on everyday life. Trains, planes and steam ships made travel easier than ever before. Merchants brought goods from all over the world to market and people began to get an idea of just how diverse the world was. Admiration turned to desire. Soon, every country began to covet what its neighbors had….
Nationalism- Love for ones own country. Feelings of superiority swept through Europe igniting small and large conflicts where men and nations could test their metal and see who was tougher, richer, smarter, etc.
Militarism- Love of the military. Being a part of the military was all the rage. Young men could impress the girls and add to their countries glory by their efforts in foreign lands and at home. Industrialization added new and deadlier weapons to the arsenals of European countries. Soldiers and politicians alike were eager to see how well their doomsday weapons worked.
Imperialist Competition- Countries of Europe were competing with each other to see who could hold the most foreign territories.
Economic Necessity- European Countries needed to expand their territory to keep their economies strong. They needed new raw materials and new buyers for their goods.
Any country who could conquer its European neighbor would win, not only land in Europe, factories and influence, but also ALL that countrys territories and empires.

The Trigger- Austria-Hungary used to control the land known now as Serbia. They let Serbia become independent peacefully, but later wanted her back. Serbia was home to a number of Bosnian rebels who had been fighting Austria-Hungary for years in terrorist attacks. Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife Sophie who was pregnant, went to visit the leaders of Serbia to show off the power of Austria- Hungary. Bosnian rebels, in Serbia, found out about the visit, ambushed the Duke and his wife, and killed them. Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Sophie
