World at war

World industrialization had created the inventive spark that brought new weapons into the First World War, with the German making their U-boats and their innovative poison gas. Machine guns in their little protective bunkers and other long range artillery are popping up everywhere in battle, soon followed by their lighter weight counter parts. Another feat, once thought impossible, are the battle plane dashing around in the sky. Pilots are risking live and limb as the fight each other in such devices, the best Baron Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the ‘Red Baron.’ Yet this isn’t the only new way to travel with Britain’s tanks, first made in 1916. All brought together with the propaganda coming up all other the world.

War takes Europe quickly, with Germany being the center of interest as it losses and wins many battles, soon launching an offensive by moving to Russian Poland. Great Britain and France take stand in the war as well, with their battles with Germany and defeat at the Gallipoli Peninsula after an eight month stalemate. The war soon took to the waters as Britain blocks Germany’s flow of raw materials, soon causing Germany to do the same. Yet after sinking the ship Lusitania, killing 128 Americans, America told Germany to stand down. Germany obeyed, fearing that neutral America would join into the war it they didn’t, cutting back the attacks. Meanwhile, the war in land soon turned to stalemate becoming a war of attrition.

The system of AlliancesBy Robyn Kainmehr

Germany and France had been rivals ever since the Franco-Prussian war. They feared each other and warred for protection and domination over the other. So over the years before world war one, alliances with Germany and France have risen and fallen. Germany and France battled for diplomatic isolation that will help in future conflicts. For both countries, Russia was the key to success of this goal. Once neutral Russia started as a part of the Triple Alliances with Germany and Austrian-Hungary, but ended up in the Triple Entente with France and Great Britain by the start of the World War. Italy soon became part of both alliances, gaining a great foothold in the war in later years.

Heir to the Austria-Hungary throne, Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife was killed on June 28, 1914 in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina by Serbian nationalist group member Gavrilo Princip. Austria-Hungary has become angered by this action, but aren't doing any threat in fear of Russian protection of Serbia. As a precaution, the country sealed negotiation and alliance with Germany before aggression to Serbia is wrought. An ultimatum was sent to the Serbian Government demanding that groups opposing the Austrian-Hungary government are to be suppressed, ban anti-Austrian-Hungary teachers and books from schools, dismiss anti-Austrian-Hungary government officials, and Austro-Hungarian officials must be allowed to participate in the trials pertaining to the assassination.
