Best Answer

The five major powers in ww1 were Great Britain, Germany, Austria, France and Russia. Another power was Italy. These major powers were rivals, starting with Great Britain whom was the main leader. Great Britain was a strong and powerful army leading to other countries turning against them.

Germany began to build up a bigger army, other countries were aware of this and therefore began to dislike Germany more and more.

Austria and Russia fought over who would own South-Eastern Europe in the future.

France starting to dislike Germany after they were defeated by the Germans in 1870. France wanted revenge.

Italy was annoyed with France after France occupied Tunisia in 1881.
