Total war is a military conflict in which nations mobilize all available resources in order to destroy another nation's ability to engage in war. The practice of total war has been in use for centuries, but it was only in the middle to the end of 19th century that total war was identified as… a separate class of warfare .There are several reasons of why Total War was recognized in the 19 th century. The main reason is industrialization . As countries' natural and capital resources grew, it became clear that some forms of conflict demanded more resources than others. Additionally, this is the time when warfare was becoming more mechanized . A factory in a city would have more to do with warfare than it did before. The factory itself would become a target, because it contributed to the war effort. It follows as well that the factory's workers would also be targets.World War One gave birth to total war in the industrial age when huge armies of soldiers faced each other across battlefields that had been made horribly lethal by technological advances in weaponry. Once the war began, the countries involved mobilized their entire populations and economic resources to achieve victory on the battlefield. The term home front was used for the first time during World War I and perfectly symbolized this new concept of a war in which the civilian population behind the lines was directly and critically involved in the war.Young men were removed from production jobs, and were replaced by women. Rationing occurred on the home fronts. One of the features of Total War in Britain was the use of propaganda posters to divert all attention to the War on the home front . Posters were used to influence people's decisions about what to eat and what occupations to take, and to change the attitude of support towards the war effort. As young men left the farms for the front, domestic food production in Britain and Germany fell. In Britain the response was to import more food, which was done despite the German introduction of unrestricted submarine warfare, and to introduce rationing. The Royal Navy's blockade of German ports prevented Germany from importing food, and the Germans failed to introduce food rationing. German capitulation was hastened in 1918 by the worsening food crises in Germany.Military success was critically dependent on a country's ability to produce a continuous supply of goods for their armies. German industrial resources were so great that Germany was able to survive the British naval blockade and meet the demands of four years of war, while giving some help to Austria-Hungary. British industry, although capable and versatile, had begun to lag in output and in modernization. Britain came to depend heavily on U.S. production. Throughout the war, Germany occupied French territory that contained important industrial and mineral resources, so France also depended on U.S. supplies. Russian industry was incapable of dealing with the needs of the Russian armies. Although Germany gained access to the vast economic resources of the western part of the former Russian Empire in the spring of 1918, it was too late in the war to affect the outcome. The combined economic resources of the United States and the British Empire played a significant role in the Allied victory.Since the end of World War II, there has not been the need for a industrialized nation to fight a decisive war, due to the availability of weapons that are so destructive that their use would balance the advantages of victory. With the making of nuclear weapons, the fighting of a war became something that instead of taking years and the full mobilization of a country's resources would instead take hours and was developed and maintained with relatively modest peace time defense budgets.

World War one (also known as The Great War) became what is known asa war of attrition - each side basically trying to exhaust theother. The main reason for armies setting up trenches - "diggingin", rather than making quick assaults was - train time tables.Back in the early 1900's, HQ relied on railw…ays to move theirtroops to locations. Cars were new and expensive to run, so armygenerals relied on using trains to move troops to and fromlocations. Why couldn't they make a quick assault? Because it wasmuch easier to defend than attack - why? Because; once the trainlines stopped, troops would need to march many miles a day to makea successful assault, and by that time, most men would be tofatigued to be able to fight properly. And so the Great War becamea war of attrition. ( Full Answer )
The thing was that it was the first use of horrible weapons: the machine gun, tanks, and tear gas. also, thirty two countries were tearing each other to shreds. Millions were dead at the end of the war
For Austria-Hungary, it was there Archduke was assassinated, but all other countries just wanted war.
World War 1 was a total war because the economic and militaryresources of the countries involved were fully devoted towards it.Ultimately, the Allies spent twice more than the Central Powers.
The proximate cause for the war was the June 28th, 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, by a Serbian nationalist, Gavrilo Princip. Gavrilo was a 19 year old boy who was a member of a nationalist group called the Black Hand Movement. Austria-…Hungary's resulting demands against the Kingdom of Serbia led to the activation of a series of alliances which within weeks saw all of the major European powers at war. As a consequence of the global empires of many European nations, the war soon spread worldwide. good answer for the paragraph above also Germany were jealous of Britain and her allies as they had more countries under there belt such as Australia and India (colonies) Germany in turn went on austria's side and russia went on Serbia side as Serbia was also a slavok nation. russia who was in the tripple entente (allies) with us and France and Germany who made up the triple alliance with austria and Italy. so if Germany attacked Serbia there effectively attacking russia which is allies with us and brought us into it. also Germany crossed through neutral belgium to attack France breaking all kind of laws and rules . ___________________________________________________ WWI has many and often confusing origins. However, one thing is certain and it is that WWI did not arise from the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand alone. Some of the major WWI origins are as follows: imperial rivalries, the alliance system, the arms race (particularly the naval race between Britain and Germany), growth of nationalism, balance of power, old territorial disputes, the Balkan wars, and much more. Perhaps one of the most significant reasons is the huge economic, colonial, military rivalry between Britain and Germany. Because of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. ( Full Answer )
It would take far too long to answer this question here. Canada participated in the war from the beginnings and contributed quite a bit. You should try Archives Canada and the Gov of Canada web sites that have a wealth of info on this. There are excellent photos, maps and films to answer this ques…tion. The first page offers a nice timeline. http://vac-acc.gc.ca/remembers/sub.cfm?source=history/firstwar/canada http://vac-acc.gc.ca/remembers/sub.cfm?source=history/firstwar/vimy One of the main things Canada had done to contribute in WW1 was the production of explosives and munitions in general. There was the infamous Halifax explosion of 1917 when a ship containing ammunition had exploded. ( Full Answer )
WWI was fought to gain ground, thus the trenches; designed to hold taken ground. The high losses of troops caused attrition. Vietnam was NOT fought to gain ground, and is thusly termed a war of attrition.
The Western front; The Balkan front; The Eastern front; The war against Turkey in Iraq & Palestine & the war in East Africa
World War I displayed many features of "total war". One was theexplicit, sustained targeting of civilians by military forces,including the "zeppelin" attacks upon English cities.

WWI was about the struggle for european countries to reach a new balance of power after some became weakened. The assassination of archduke Franz Ferdinand is said to be the kicking point, but it was really the act of violence that turned all the tension into a real war. WWII also started because t…he nations had been unable to reach a stable balance after WWI. At the beginning of WWII, Hilter's Germany began taking land and expanding it's borders. ( Full Answer )
Some movies that were placed in the setting of World War 1 are: "All quiet on the Western Front", "Barbed Wire" and "In love and War"
Even though the war started out as a conflict between Serbia and Russia against Germany and Austria-Hungary, it quickly became a global war when Great Britain, France, and Germany dragged their colonies/overseas allies into the war. Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, South Africans, and Rhodesia…ns all fought for England in the war. Men from Algeria, Tunisia, Vietnam, and Morocco fought for the French and Germany had men from Africa and Southeast Asia fight also. The Ottoman Empire entered the war in 1915 on the side of Germany and fighting thus occurred in the Dardanelles and the Arabian peninsula between the British and Ottoman forces. The Arab revolt against Turkey involved more people in the Middle East, and the US joined the war in 1917. Whenever you have all of the Great Powers involved in a war, then it is a world war. ______________________________________________________________________ It became a World War because of the multiple alliances. Serbians killed the archduke of Austria-Hungary in Bosnia. Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. Serbia had an alliance with Russia and then Russia joined the war. Russia was in the Triple Entente and pulled Britain and France into the war. Austria-Hungary had alliances with Germany and the Ottoman Empire. They also joined the war. ( Full Answer )
World War 1 effected the world in many ways. Communism rose in theSoviet Union, and Germany failed to follow the treaty ofVersailles.
Yes. World War I falls into the category of total war because the major focus of the governments involved was the war.
The main combatants controlled most of the planet, so in that sense it was a World War. But almost all of the fighting was in Europe, so you could say it was less of a World War than the Seven Years War, which saw Britain defeat France in both North America and the Indian Subcontinent.
The reservationists were a group of people who were hesitant to goto war. There was also another group that opposed Wilson's Leagueof Nations and were led by Henry Cabot Lodge.
Total war is generally understood to mean war between 2 or more countries that apply all their resources to conquering the other country. This usually results in damage to cities and high losses of men, ships and equipment. Limited war would be when two countries are fighting over a disputed borde…r or a separate colony or island that does not influence the rest of the country or its population. *Basically total war means that you do not just attack the soldiers, you attack your opponents economy and their alliances, anything you can do to hurt the opposing nation ( Full Answer )
Individual wars spread out, thru out the world, such as the Philippine Insurrection in 1900-1902 (currently referred to as the Philippine-American War); Bolshevik (Communist) revolts in Tsarist Russia in 1905, involving the mutiny of the Russian battleship Potemkin in the Black Sea; the Russian-Japa…nese War 1904-1905...which fueed the 1905 Russian revolt, and gave rise to Lenin.

The Germans were fighting with Great Britain for the English channel and the thing that started off the war was called the "spark". The spark was the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
WWI is considered to be the first total war. In WWI, both sides, Germany and France/Britain were attempting to kill civilians and people who supported the enemy. Both sides tried to bleed the other side to death. Both sides also tried coming up with weapons that would damage the enemy. Britain made …the first tank, Germany made the first U-boat as well as poison gas. ( Full Answer )
Simspon . There were many, in all participating countries. My vote goes to Sgt. Alvin York!
Germany thought they would defeat France easily but they were wrong ,they were evenly matched and couldn't defeat each other.So they held their positions by digging trenches and tried to gain the land in between them known as no-man's-land.
There were many different generals on either side. The Entente (aka. Allies) elected a Frenchman by the name of Foch as their "head" general, who was in charge of everything. All other generals deviated to him.
Austria - Hungary : started the war with Serbia Germany : allied with Austria-Hungary before the war and had to follow through Ottoman Empire Kingdom of Bulgaria: Bitter due to their last war with Serbia was the last join in on the war for the Central Powers and the first to sign the armistice…. ~Italy: Italy joined to make the triple alliance but never really helped out. When they officially entered the war they were on the Allied forces because they were promised land in the Treaty of London. ( Full Answer )
the main things tanks did was to push through the enemnys front lines, but this was uasually unsuccessful due to poor fire power and voneroblitity to enemy shells.
WW1 ended with the signing of an Armistice [a truce or a cessation of hostilities] on 11.11.1918. It was not unconditional surrender by Germany, the reason why there were those who said WW2 started on the same day because the allies had not pressed for unconditional surrender. In fact after the trea…ty of Versailles the french leader Georges Clemenceau said " we will have to do it all over again in 20 yrs time" ( Full Answer )
this is debatable - many people would say no. it was triggered by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, by a Serb. However, there were many long-term causes, such as the Franco-Prussian war, and the building of alliances, which cause tension between cou…ntries. This tension meant that the whole of Europe was on the brink of war, and Germany kind of wanted it to start, because they were so certain they would win. In short, world war one started because of built up tension and complicated agreements between countries, which dragged each other into war. ( Full Answer )
There is a lot of criticism of WW1, however, one of the main fundemental criticisms often pointed out is that WW1 is the cause of WW2. As much as I would like to talk about this topic; I frankly cba!!
It is now correct to use WW 1 not WWI because of the confusion with the Roman Numeral I. Many young people have not learned the Roman Numeral System and the computer does not recognize it either. So the proper designations are WW2 and WW1 and it is preferable for the full wording to avoid confusion …with WWW, world wide web. So it is preferable to use World War 1 and World War 2. Times and technology changes. ( Full Answer )
Of course it was! Absolutely. Who got anything out of it, other than grief? Who even expected to get anything out of it? Serbia got the whole thing started because they coveted a few hundred square miles of the neighboring massive Austro-Hungarian Empire, for the glory of greater Pan Serbia. Say …about the size of a county or two in the US. France hoped to get back the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, lost in the Franco-Prussian War. Italy hoped to trim off a slice of the south edge of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for herself. Germany hoped to gain land from France. The Russians, God Bless them, took what was a war between Serbia and Austria-Hungary, started by the Serbians by backing terrorists who assassinated the Heir to the Throne of the Empire, like a mouse biting a lion, and the Russians decided to jump in it, making the local war one that involved the world, for no better reason than they thought of themselves as the "mother of the slavs", the Serbs being Slavs. So like a deranged mother ("my babies can do nothing wrong") in swooped the Russians, bringing in Germany and France, and in short order Belgium and England, and then all the rest. So millions had to die because the Serbians had delusions of grandeur and the Russians couldn't keep their snouts out of it. ( Full Answer )
What? This answer is both grammatically incorrect and doesn't make sense in the slightest. If you are looking for the location of World war one, it was mainly in Europe but was elsewhere as well. Some of the most noted places were Germany, France and Turkey (Gallipoli). If you are looking for the ti…me of World war one, it was between 1915-1918 ( Full Answer )
This is a long answer because it involves many parts of battle. In three major terms, it was from the new horrible weapons used, trench warfare, and sheer numbers. First, weapons. Many inventions, such as gas warfare, airplanes and tanks were unleashed and killed many soldiers. Also, artillery ri…pped apart human bodies and killed even more. The technology had not evolved with time and mood about war. Trench warfare was a horrific aspect of battle. Soldiers would literally camp and sometimes live in trenches, waiting for the enemy to come or get struck by artillery or aircraft. When soldiers were ordered to cross the land in between trenches, or no-man's-land, machine guns were often waiting to cut the infantry to a field of corpses. Finally, the number of men who died was terrifying. About 9 million died in combat, and another 14 million were wounded in action. If you look at World War I photos of soldiers, you will see more gruesome pictures. Hopefully, reader, you know more about the Great War.

in world war one there were two groups, the allied powers, which included great britain, russia, france, italy, japan, U.S.( later on in the 1917s), and 25 other nations, and then there were Central Powers, which included germany, austria-hungary(they were one country at the time), ottoman empire, a…nd bulgaria. The people that were mainly fighting also had two "teams" the Triple Entente (Great Britain, France, and Russia) and the Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy).

it was called the war to end all wars. it didn't, of course. WWI was important because Serbia wanted to blame someone for the assassination of their arch duke. Germany jumped to the other side, France and England wanted to help Serbia. It was also the spark of WWII, because it led to the Great Depre…ssion in Germany, making them listen to Hitler as he pulled them out of it. ( Full Answer )

Well, that really depends on the country you want. For Russia, a couple main generals are Alexi Brusilov, and Rennenkampf. (It sounds German, but trudt me, its Russian.) The French had Marshal Phillipe Petain and Marshal Foch. Of course, the Americans had General John "Black Jack" Pershing. The Germ…ans had Kluck, Moltke, Hindenburg, and Schlieffen, just to name a few! And for the British, finally, we have the younger Winston Churchill, who was praised for excellent leadership in WW2, but in the Great War was criticized for his failure at Gallipoli. ( Full Answer )
The Peace Treaty of Versailles was drafted at the end of World War I to attain, essentially retribution from Germany for repairs from the war. The loss of finances and limitations of the military, communication with neighboring countries, etc. put Germany in a severe state of financial depression. W…hen Hitler took control, he ignored a large part of the treaty (building up the army, regaining contact with old alliances, and invading neighboring countries). These led to England and France declaring war on Germany to stop them. ( Full Answer )
