Was Germany to blame for the First World War.
On the 28th July, Austria declared war on Serbia, on the 29th July, the Russians got ready to help in the war. On the 1st August, Germany declared war on Russia, while the French soldiers was put on a war alert on the 2nd. O the 3rd of August, Germany declared war on France and invaded Belgium. On the 4th, Britain declared war on Germany and on the 6th, Austria declared war on Russia. Thus the First World War had begun.
There were many different causes for the First World War, as well as many factors that contributed to each separate cause. The major causes of the First World War were;
> Arms race
> Economic Rivalry
> Colonial Rivalry
> Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
All of these causes combined to produce bad feelings and tension throughout Europe, especially with the countries concerned. Some historians believe that Germany was solely responsible for the outbreak of the First world war, others think that all of the countries involved had some influence in the First World war outbreak.
