Unit 12 (chapter 29) World War 1 (1914-1918)
World War 1 was often referred to as "the great war". America witnessed many casualties in this period. During the war from 1914 to 1918 nearly 9 million people died and millions more were crippled or critically injured.
World War 1 was mainly caused by militarism, imperialism, nationalism, and alliances. Every country wanted their military to be above and better than the others, this caused them to form alliances between each other. The immediate spark of World War 1 was the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand price of Austria-Hungary. Austro-Hungarian Empire suspected and believed it was their neighboring country Serbia that did it.
The effects of World War 1 are that it took many lives and it was one of the bloodiest wars in history. After World War 1 new wars slowly formed which also led up to World War 2 and other wars.
Without World War 1 we wouldn't have had a WW2 and a cold war.
WW1 was a turning point in history for bad.
