The Triple alliance consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy. The Triple Entante consisted of Great Britain, Russia and France.

Decline of ottoman empireThe ottoman Empire was declining because it became weak because there were so many ethnic backgrounds and great britain relations became strained after great britan signed an agreement with russia, meanwhile Germany was getting close with the Ottoman Empire.

Although the tanks had many pros it was slow and clumsy.Submarine-It was an underwater ship with torpedoes. These were used by the Germans to destroy all of the allies ships and this is also how the U.S. became involved in this war.

Turning points-The entry of the united states was when the U.S. allowed american ships to carry supplies to the allies, meanwhile they were trying to remain neutral in the war. Germany used unrestricted submarine warfare that attacked any ships on the atlantic even if they were carrying american passengerslike the lusitania. In 1918 russia's new leader signed a treaty with germany that took russia out of the war
