What is the label given to World War 1 due to continual human slaughter?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Genocide due to out-dated tactics used against modern technology like machine guns combined with idiotic war commanders who were inflexible with their strategies. e.g. when provided with an opening to enemy weakness they would stick with their original tactic at the risk of being fired by their higher officials.

Asked by Wiki User

If you are speaking of the five major Allies, those would be Britain, France, Russia, Italy, and the United States.

If you include the Central Powers, then Germany and Austria-Hungary would be the most significant. Which three allies should be included along with the two central powers is debatable. It would depend on your criteria. France, Russia, and Italy each had a front in their territory. But England, France, and Russiawere the most powerful allies that fought throught the entire war.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The countries got involved in World War 1 due to a combination of factors, including territorial disputes, alliances, militarism, and a desire for power and dominance. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary by a Serbian nationalist was the immediate trigger for the war, but underlying tensions and rivalries among the major powers had been building for years. Ultimately, the complex web of alliances, nationalist ambitions, and a desire to protect their own interests drew countries into the conflict.

Why did the US get involved the world war 1?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The United States got involved in World War I for several reasons:

**1. Unrestricted Submarine Warfare:**The primary immediate cause was Germany's policy of unrestricted submarine warfare. German submarines, known as U-boats, were sinking American merchant ships, causing casualties and threatening America's economic interests. The sinking of the RMS Lusitania in 1915, which had American passengers aboard, was a significant catalyst that swayed public opinion against Germany.

**2. Defense of Neutral Rights:**The United States also entered the war to defend neutral rights. President Woodrow Wilson emphasized the importance of protecting the freedom of the seas and ensuring that neutral countries could trade without facing threats or blockades.

Overall, the combination of unrestricted submarine warfare by Germany, attacks on American merchant ships, and the desire to safeguard neutral rights ultimately led to the United States' involvement in World War I on the side of the Allied powers.

How did world war 1 affect society politically?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

World War I had profound and far-reaching political effects on societies around the world.

  1. End of Monarchies: The war contributed to the downfall of several monarchies, most notably the German, Russian, Austro-Hungarian, and Ottoman empires. The Russian Revolution in 1917 led to the establishment of a communist government, while in Germany, the abdication of Kaiser Wilhelm II marked the end of the German monarchy.

  2. Formation of New Nations: The war redrew the map of Europe and the Middle East. The Treaty of Versailles and other peace treaties led to the creation of new nations and the redrawing of borders, including the establishment of independent countries like Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia.

  3. League of Nations: The League of Nations was created as part of the Treaty of Versailles in an attempt to prevent future conflicts. Although the League had shortcomings and ultimately failed to prevent World War II, it laid the groundwork for the establishment of the United Nations after World War II.

  4. Political Changes in Russia: The war played a crucial role in the Russian Revolution of 1917. The fall of the Russian monarchy and the rise of the Bolsheviks, led by Vladimir Lenin, resulted in the establishment of the first communist state.

  5. Shift in Global Power Dynamics: The war marked a shift in global power dynamics. Traditional European powers weakened, and the United States emerged as a major player on the international stage. The war contributed to the decline of European imperialism.

  6. Treaty of Versailles: The Treaty of Versailles imposed harsh conditions on Germany, leading to economic hardships and resentment. The perceived injustice of the treaty's terms played a role in the rise of Adolf Hitler and the outbreak of World War II.

  7. Women's Suffrage: World War I had a significant impact on the women's suffrage movement. Women played essential roles in the war effort, leading to increased recognition of their contributions and, in many countries, the granting of voting rights after the war.

  8. Shift in Ideologies: The war contributed to shifts in political ideologies. The harsh conditions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles fueled nationalist sentiments in Germany, while the success of the Bolshevik Revolution influenced the spread of communism.

  9. Rise of Authoritarianism: The post-war period saw the rise of authoritarian regimes in several countries, driven in part by economic instability and social unrest. This trend set the stage for later political developments, including the rise of fascist regimes in Europe.

World War I reshaped the political landscape, leading to the transformation of governments, the emergence of new nations, and shifts in global power dynamics that had lasting effects on the 20th century.

What are the World events leading to the second of Christ?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Ephesians 3 reveals that we presently live in the Age of Grace. Despite this, II Timothy 3 informs us that we are also in the Perilous Times of The Last Days. Following the Age of Grace will be The Day of Christ, commonly called the Second Coming.

Philippians 1:10 "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;"

Philippians 2:16 "Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."

II Thessalonians 2:2 "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand."

There will not be a series of world events to inform us that we are approaching the second coming of Christ. We only know that it will commence with the shout of the Archangel Gabriel.

I Thessalonians 4:16,17 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

What is newly industrializing countries?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The category of newly industrialized country (NIC) is a socioeconomic classification applied to several countries around the world by political scientists and economists. NICs are countries whose economies have not yet reached first world status but have, in a macroeconomic sense, outpaced their developing counterparts. Another characterization of NICs is that of nations undergoing rapid economic growth (usually export-oriented). Incipient or ongoing industrialization is an important indicator of a NIC. In many NICs, social upheaval can occur as primarily rural, agricultural populations migrate to the cities, where the growth of manufacturing concerns and factories can draw many thousands of laborers. NICs usually share some other common features, including: * Increased social freedoms and civil rights. * Strong Political Leaders * A switch from agricultural to industrial economies, especially in the manufacturing sector. * An increasingly open-market economy, allowing free trade with other nations in the world. * Large national corporations operating in several continents. * Strong capital investment from foreign countries. * Political leadership in their area of influence. Examples of NICs include China, India, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, etc. Source courtesy of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newly_industrialized_country

How much is a musket ball worth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Unknown, but it depends on how old it is and where it came from. Musket balls are still being made today for black powder enthusiasts, and they make good slingshot ammo too. These would be worth no more than the current value of lead. A musket ball from an important battle, duel, or other historical event would surely have monetary value, but it would depend on how much the buyer is willing to pay, and proving it is genuine will be difficult. A musket ball is much easier to counterfeit than a coin.
