What were the goals of the Allied Powers for fighting World War 1?
The Allies's goal in WW 2 was to destroy the Nazi government of Germany and to get rid of fascism in Europe. The goal in WW 1 was to defeat the German Empire that had started an unprovoked attack on France and Russia. Britain was drawn into the war because it was an ally of France. The German attack happened in the wake of the murder of Austria's crown prince. But its real reason was that Germany felt threatened by a military alliance between France and Russia a short while earlier - and decided to attack before it might be attacked itself by these two countries.
