M.A.I.N. Causes of WW1World War 1 had four main causes that started it all. The four main reasons are Militarism, Alliance System, Imperialism, and Nationalism.The acronym M.A.I.N. created the conditions for a world war for many examples. M.A.I.N. was the cause for a world war because of the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir to the Austrian throne. Militarism is the glorification of military power. Alliance System is Europe trying to maintain the balance of power. Imperialism is the takeover of a country. Nationalism is a unity based in a common language, religion, and heritage. The trouble in balkans was Europe’s “power keg”,and intense ethnic strife. An example of Imperialism in the balkans was Austria-Hungary wanting to add Serbia to their empire. An example of Nationalism was large empires torn apart or nationalist groups wanting independence. An example of Alliance System is when they wanted power from the triple alliance Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy. Militarism example is when a large number of armies were ready to mobilize anytime, with competing among nations to have the biggest army.In conclusion, the main cause of World War 1 was Nationalism, Imperialism, Militarism, and Alliance System. The war had lasted four years before ending, and had no winner to the war.

PES EssayTowards the end of World War 1, there was political, social, and economic impacts that happened during the war. The Treaty of Versailles was one of the peace treaties at the end of World War I. The Treaty of Versailles had also affected populations, wealth, and power.A social impact is the effect of an activity on the social fabric of the community and well-being of the individuals and families. An example of social impact is when Russia had a revolution due to food and clothing shortages. When Russia lost the war their country was in poverty because of the expenses from the war. Another example of this, 8.5 million soldiers were killed and 21 million were wounded during ww1. The war lasted four years in battle, which caused many deaths.A economic impact examines the effect of an event on the economy in a specified area, ranging from a single neighborhood to the entire globe. Two examples of economic impact was the 33 billion dollars in reparations from the war, and colonies fighting for European Imperials. The colonies were involved in the war because of the alliance system and were fighting for European Imperials. Germany was blamed for the war, and the other countries decided that they should pay for reparations. The Germans became very bitter from the war guilt.A political impact is how the decisions of various institutions affect the setting of the society. Two examples, is the Big Four and League of Nations. The Big four was the four men from Britain, France, Italy, and USA, that made most decisions at the Paris Peace Conference. The League of Nations was a treaty of peace created by the United States in order to keep peace with other countries but failed.In conclusion, the political, social, and economic impacts of World War 1 were all caused by the same reasons. The Treaty of Versailles was not a success during the end of war. The impacts had caused for a World War 1 to happen.
