Germany had a very effective educational system by the start of world war 1. Unlike other European countries like Italy (67 percent), Austria-Hungary (78 percent) and France (93 percent) , Germany had almost 100 percent literacy rate by 1914. Germany was economically and industrially way ahead of other European countries.
