A Houndred Yeas From WW1

In 1914, almost all of Europe had been dragged into the bloodiest war in history, the First World War. This war took place between the years 1914 and 1918. Many consequences happened because of this inevitable war, which started because of many purposes.

WW1´s countries were allied between them. An alliance is an agreement made between two or more countries to give each other help if it is needed. This alliances were made between the years 1879 and 1914. This powerful alliances were The Triple Alliance (formed by Germany, Austria and Italy) and The Triple Entente (formed by Britain, Russia and France). Alliances were made because of convenience or rivalry. One example was the Naval Rivalry between Great Britain and Germany. Because of this Rivalry they were enemies and were in different alliances.

In 1914, within six weeks of the Archduke’s assassination, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia because of the fact of Franz Ferdinand’s murder. France, Great Britain and Russia, allied with Serbia, because of the Triple Entente, and the war started. Although this was the final straw.
As I said before, Italy was part of the Triple Alliance before the war started. But things changed. When the war started, Italy wanted to see how did the war progressed and think which Alliance was more convenient for her. In April of 1915 Italy became part of the Triple Entente because of the Treaty of London. This treaty consisted in giving land to Italy if she fought by her side. After this Italy fought against Austria-Hungary and in several situations she was humiliated and lost many soldiers. An example of this was the battle of Caporetto. In that battle the Italian army lost 300.000 men. By the end of the war the country had lots of high-inflation and unemployment. At the end, they did not have the compensation that they thought they would have.
The Russian Revolution were some internal problems that Russia had with her government. This fact made her collapse and signed the Brest Litovsk.
The 1st of April in 1917, the USA discovered that Germany wanted to ally with Mexico against them and she declared war on Germany and joined to WW1. Before this happened, the Germans had destroyed many American ships that had many goods and American people.

After all, the Triple Entente won the war and led into economic collapse to all of their enemies.
When war ended, in 1918, President Wilson, made fourteen peaceful points that were used for peace negotiations to finish with it.

The final treaty of the WW1 was the Treaty Of Versailles. This took place in 1919 where the Central Powers and the Triple Entente had a meeting and signed a treaty of peace to finish the war. This treaty was singed after the discussion of the big three (Wilson, L.L George and Clemenceau). Each of this important politicans wanted a different result in this treaty. One of those ideas was to take revenge in Germany and destroy her and the other was to make Germany pay everything, because they thought that if they would make Germany spend a difficult moment then she could take defeated them. At the end the points that had to be followed by the Treaty Of Versailles were this:
1) no more secret treaties
2) countries must seek to reduce their weapons and their armed forces
3) national self-determination should allow people of the same nationality to govern themselves and one nationality should not have the power to govern another
4) all countries should belong to the League of Nationsphoto 4
