What countries were created and which disappeared at the end of World War 2?

Czec Republic, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Yugoslavia, Slovakia, and Turkey were created. Austria-Hungary, Czechoslavakia, the Ottoman Empire, and Serbia were broken up into new countries. This information is incorrect. Austria-Hungary broke apart after WW1 as did the Ottoman Empire. Poland, Latvia, Estonia, etc were all created after WW1. I believe the answer is almost entirely about the end of WW1 and not WW2 like the question states.

Who was taking over in World War 1?

WW1 was not so much about 'taking over', like WW2 was about Hitler seeking a form of European and world domination, but was more a general jostling for power and influence as the Turkish Ottoman Empire steadily collapsed. Imagine, if you will, the head of a family dying, and his children, his nieces and nephews all with their own agendas and ambitions trying to manoeuvre their way to his assets and influence. That was what WW1 was about.

Did Australia go to world war 1 and why?

Yes, Australia fought in World War I. In fact, Australian casualties during the war were very high - the highest per capita of any Allied country, even despite the fact that Australia never introduced conscription during the war. Australians fought in major campaigns, such as the unsuccessful Gallipoli campaign, numerous battles on the Western Front (such as the Battle of the Hindenburg Line) and in the Ottoman Empire (like the Battle of Beersheba). Australia fought as part of the British Empire. At that time, Australia did not have a foreign policy independent of Britain's. As soon as Britain declared war, Australia was obligated to join in. Furthermore, Australians were enthusiastic in their desire to fight, wanting to support Britain and prove Australia's worth as a new nation (Federation had taken place only 13 years earlier).

What were the classrooms like during World War 1?

What would the world look like today if WW1 never happened?

If WWI never happened, then that means no WWII. Meaning no Holocaust. This means that over 90 million people DON'T die. Secondly, No USSR or Axis powers. WWI = Russian starvation. Russian starvation = uprising. WWI was the reason for WWII. Without WWI, no fascism and no communism.Third of all, no WWI means that the Ottoman Empire and Austro Hungarian Empire might survive until 1925 due to ethnic chaos occurring in both empires.Fourth of all, no WWI means no WWII means no Cold War. Since the USSR isn't here, this means that nobody is really the superpower during the 20th century, because WWI allowed the USA to show its power and influence over the world.
