Nationalism gave a cause and a voice to ethnicities that had been repressed under the yoke of large, European Empires and set the groundwork for the modern nation-state. This led to these ethnicities, which had already had tensions with the larger imperial governments to rise up in insurrections and independence movements.

with international tensions on the rise, the great powers expanded their armies and navies..the result was an arms race that further increased suspicions and made war more likely
