    Default The reason for WW1

    I have some definate views on what was the real cause of WW1.

    I know nest to nothing about the First World War. But it would seem that decades, even centuries, of colonial and economic competition between Euro Imperial powers led to a colossal military blunder...

    I think the open-ended, secret defense pacts had a lot to do with things spiraling out of control...

    i think its started when a prince of austria was killed in a very small country. Germany and Austria declared war on that small nation, and russia, england, has to protect its allies, so they have to declare war on Austria and Germany.

    I think Japan and Italy is on the allied side too, but did not play an active role.

    Too many alliances and to many big heads in the governments of Europe. It was a war just waiting to happen. I dont think anyone could have ever expected the consequences this war would have on the world.

    I did a great synopsis of the chain of events which turned the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand (no, not a prince) into a global conflict back in the days of tin walt. If one of the administrators could dig it out, I would be very grateful.

    Oh, and by the way, Italy and Japan played very active roles.

    One of the tragic things about the start of WW1 was that many countries got involved unnecessarily due to old treaty obligations after the assassination of a royal bloke in the Balkans. Back in the day, treaty obligations counted for rather more than they do today. A brief chronology:

    *Archduke Frans Ferdinand assassinated in Sarajevo
    *Austria-Hungary sends ultimatum to the Serbs
    *Serbia was allied with Russia, so Austria-Hungary sought assurances from Germany for mutual defence
    *A-H declares war on Serbia
    *Russia, bound by treaty with Serbia mobilises
    *Germany, allied to A-H sees Russian mobilisation as an act of war against A-H, declares war on Russia
    *France was bound by treaty with Russia so found herself at war with Germany and thus also A-H
    *Germany invades neutral Belgium
    *Britain, although bound loosly to France by a "moral obligation", was obliged to defend Belgium due to the Treaty of London 1839, and declares war on Germany the day Belgium is invaded.
    *Japan, honoring a military agreement with Britain declares war on Germany on 24th August
    *Italy, although allied to Germany and A-H by a defensive pact, argues that the war is offensive, so stays out till 1915, siding with the Allies having been promised large territorial gains from A-H under the secret Treaty of London 1915 (here's your country that entered the war purely for its own interests).
    *USA enters in 1917 cos the U-boats were pissing off US commercial shipping

    précis of http://www.firstworldwar.com/origins/causes.htm

    Thus, what should have been a little balkan scrap between A-H and Serbia turned into a world war, purely through treaty obligations.
    Im assuming this is the one you are talking about!?!?

    But, essentially the "root causes" were a series of miscalculations of epic proportions. The European leaderships were still playing by the rules of 30 or 40 years earlier -- they took their mutual defence treaty commitments far too seriously, which escalated what should have been a little spat in Austria-Hungary's backyard into a global conflict due to the chain of events in the archived post (it's also quite easy to find the same information on the Internet -- try Wikipedia).

    Essentially, once Austria-Hungary invaded Serbia to punish them for the assassination, the juggernaut was unstoppable. If Russia had not honoured her treaty commitment with Serbia and had instead said "your problem, you sort it out", it would not all have gone breasts skyward.

    Probably the best/worst case ever of adults not knowing when to back off.

    i.e. Archduke Franz Ferdinand assassinated by some unknown Serb (Gavrilo Princip). Do the Austro-Hungarians act as mature adults and quietly ask for justice to be done through the courts? No, that would be too sensible, so they get all macho about it and send an ultimatum to the Serbs and declare war.

    This is just the classic bar room scenario where some one accidently spills some one's drink. It could end up in a mature solution such as someone buying a fresh drink or at the other extreme some one ending up being knifed. Such stupidity happens every day of the week and always will whilst humans get macho instead of getting sensible.

    So stupid human nature started WW1.
