Why Did A World War Breakout In 1914?
World War 1 was a huge war triggered by the smallest of things such as assassinations and alliances. These were all a part of the trigger of the First World War. In my opinion I think that the alliances were the main causes of the war.
If it wasn't for each other thinking that they have other countries to back them up, such as Germany and Austria, they wouldn't have even thought about attacking and invading other countries.
If Austria didn't have Germany to back them up, they would not have gone and invaded Serbia also Russia wouldn't have mobilised their troops if they didn't have France or Britain.
This then made it much more likely for a world war to start. If an Ali started a fight you would have to join in. It won't even matter to you but in the end it will turn out to be a war of power.
The other main trigger was the Schleiffen Plan as this also made the alliances come together and fight.
A world war is different to a normal war
