The causes for each were not entirely the same. Before WWI countries were content to wage war on each other relatively indirectly, for control of the colonies and their resources. After WWI, the possibility of directly attacking other European countries was once again raised. WWI started due to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. It involved several countries because a lot of countries had agreed to help each other if war came. It was called The War to End all Wars, or The Great War.
World war II started when Germany again began it's expansion into Europe A lot of countries didn't like that, and so there was another huge war. It didn't make sense to say 'The War' anymore, and so they came to be called World War 1 and World War 2. The Japanese, expecting America to be occupied in the European war, and considering America as a threat to it's Asia-Pacific hegemony declared war on the Americans.
World War 1 came first. Technology was relatively primitive, with most of the war being done in trenches. Early airplanes were used. Poisonous gas was deployed for the first time.
In World War 2, tanks were used as the main deployment in many areas. Planes had improved, and bombers and fighters were heavily used. Submarines were also more heavily used. Encryption codes for secret also became more complex.
In both wars Germany was fighting against Great Britain, France, Russia and United States and in both wars Germany lost the war and territory.
In First World War, the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) carried genocide against Armenians; in
Second World Germans committed genocide against Jews and Romanies ('gypsies').
But while First World War was mostly the war between countries, Second World War was also the war of ideologies, such as Fascism and Communism.
Casualties and damages in the Second World War were on larger scale.
The Americans did not directly join WW2 immediately; they only joined after they were attacked at Pearl Harbour.
World War 1 came first, but there were a lot of differences. Many of the same countries were involved in World War 2, but the weaponry was more advanced and the idealogies had changed. Also, World War 2 lasted longer, and more people were killed in it worldwide.
World War One or the Great War was mostly a trench war. It mainly consisted of trench combat. One side would wait in there trench while one advanced and attacked. World War Two was a war where the Germans Italians and Japanese tried to conquer the world (Mainly Europe and the Pacific) Then the Allied powers went and retook the land.
they are completely separate wars

In the beginning, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. Serbia had an alliance with Russia, and Austria-Hungary with Germany. Russia also had an alliance with France, and so they became involved as well. When Germany tried to invade France, they had to go through Belgium, who declared war on Germany as well. Great Britain had an alliance with Belgium, and also had ties to France. Thus, they became involved in the Great War as well. So:
The Central Powers:
Note: These are just the main powers. When it came to war, most countries also brought with them ties to their colonies, and so the list of involved countries and territories is extensive.
Over twenty-seven countries were mentioned as the Allied and Associated Powers in the Treaty of Versailles. World War I, however, was truly global in its outreach because colonies of European nations also went to war.
Austria-Hungary : Austria-Hungary initiated World War I by declaring war on Serbia in July 1914.
Belgium : Though initially neutral, Belgium joined World War I to offer stiff resistance against German invasion.
Brazil : Brazil joined World War I in 1917 on the side of the Allies, and was the only Latin American country to participate in the Great War.
British Empire : Britain and British colonies including Australia, Canada, India, and New Zealand formed part of the Allied camp. The spread of the British colonies across the globe brought World War I to Africa and Asia.
Bulgaria : The Kingdom of Bulgaria joined the Central Powers in 1915 and fought until September 1918.
China : China entered World War I in 1917 following U.S. entry into the war.
France and Colonies : One of the major Allied nations, France declared war with the German declaration of war against France on August 3, 1914.
German Empire : Germany was a major Central Power. Austria-Hungary's declaration of war was heavily influenced by Germany's assurance of support.
Greece : Following the U.S. entry into World War I, Greece entered the war on the side of the Allies on June 27, 1917.
Italy : Initially reluctant to join the war despite an alliance with Germany and Austria-Hungary, Italy sided with the allies in 1915.
Japan : Japan's entry into World War I in August 1914 followed Britain's request to combat raids of the Kaiserliche Marine (German Imperial Navy).
Liberia : Liberian trade was adversely affected by World War I, and the country joined the Allied Powers in 1917.
Montenegro : Linked closely with Serbia, Montenegro joined the Allied cause in August 1914.
Ottoman Empire : The Ottoman Empire joined World War I in November 1914, on the side of the Central Powers, due to its close ties with Germany.
Portugal : Despite the rivalry between Portugal and Germany, Portugal remained neutral until March 1915, when Germany declared war. Portugal then joined the Allies.
Romania : Romania joined the Allies in August 1916.
Russia : Russia, along with Britain and France, was one of the major Allied Powers, and first among the nations to mobilize troops against Germany.
Serbia : The outbreak of World War I was triggered by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary in Sarajevo, Serbia. Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia in July 1914.
United States of America: The United States declared neutrality in 1914. In 1917, the United States associated with the Allied nations thereby changing the course of World War I.
Other countries such as Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, San Marino, and Siam were also involved in the Great War.
There was large impact on Australia, many people died and communities felt losses. Nearly everyone had lost a loved one or knew someone that did.AnswerMuch of the Australian economy, government and society in general was transformed in World War I. Women had to replace men in the workforce, but were not paid reasonably. New companies such as BHP in Newcastle was formed and chemical and electrical industries followed. Food shortages were not as much a problem in Australia as is in many parts of Europe. Their price only raised by around 32%. The Australian Agricultural sector earned much money, as Britain bought much of their wheat as part of their war effort. Much legislations and acts were made in parliament, such as the War Pensions Act and the War Census Act. However, the impact of the war only became much more apparent when the soldiers returned, with many losses for a country with a relatively small population. Household violence was more common, as well as drunkenness, hostility between trade unionists and returned soldiers were also a problem, as well as that between Protestants and Catholics. The Government also had to suffer the burden of supplying jobs for all the returned soldiers, whom would start the RSL, which emphasised the needs of the returned soldier. AnswerTHE EFFECT OF WAR ON AUSTRALIANS 1) Destruction of a generation of men - 331 781 troops into action. - 59 342 killed or died from wounds. - 152 171 wounded or affected by gas. - 4084 became Prisoner�s of war. - The nation had lost some of it�s finest men who could have contributed a lot to the growth of the nation. 2) Establishment of Military tradition - The Australians had proved themselves to be first-rate soldiers. - They had been brave tough and resourceful. - A whole new national image had been born.
3) Symbols of Remembrance - The Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League was formed in 1916. - Anzac Day, 25th of April has become a national day of remembrance. - Across Australia, a surprising number of stone obelisks, statues and memorial halls were raised to commemorate the fallen.
It also served to bring to power one of Australia's greatest ever politicians and statesmen- William Morris 'Billy' Hughes. This turbulent, fiery-tempered little Welshman was elected to power in 1915 following the collapse of the Fisher Government- although seen by many as a noisy, belligerent Empire loyalist, Hughes was nonetheless a passionate Australian nationalist, who fought like a hellcat for what he believed to be in the nation's best interests. Up until his advent, Australia had been governed by a series of vague, stately, top-hatted grandees, whose political philosophies and practices remained rooted in the Victorian era and who were ill-suited to steer a fast-developing nation through a rapidly changing world. Hughes changed all that- he was the first Australian PM to truly connect with his electorate, to make them feel proud of being Australians, and to begin the process of turning the country from being an obscure Colonial outpost on the other side of the world, into an advanced, industrialised regional power with a strong voice in international affairs. Although he lost the Premiership in 1923, he remained a powerful political influence throughout the rest of his life and held several Cabinet positions in subsequent administrations, up until his death in late 1952. He changed the very concept of what it meant to be Australian- his influence on the country can be compared to that of F.D.Roosevelt on the USA, and ushered in a fundamental and irreversible leap forward from colony to nationhood.
This is a very subjective question, leaving people bound to claim their own country a having the best army in the world. In reality it comes down to what you define as best.
If you define best as "which individual Army is most likely to win a war against a foreign power?", then the answer is undoubtedly the United States. Although they have a smaller Army than the Chinese in terms of manpower, their technology is, at this time, far superior making them more likely to succeed in all out war.
That said, war is rarely straight forward and allegiances are often formed to bring down a common enemy who could not be defeated by an individual nation. For example, if the United States entered into war with A member of the European Union, the other members would probably come to it's aid. In this situation, the eventual victor of the conflict would probably be the allied Europeans as together they have similar technology to the United States but a greater number of troops and a stronger economy.
If the playing field was level in terms of man power and technology the situation changes again, with the emphasis being on the skill of the Individual soldier and the strategy of the army. Here the British probably excel, having regiments like the SAS, Royal Marines and Parachute regiment with a reputation for stringent discipline and intensive training (the Royal Marines have the longest basic training course of any normal infantry soldiers in the world at 33 weeks). Of course the US is not far behind with Delta Force or the Navy SEALs but the size of their special forces makes it harder to train all of the soldiers to the same level that other nations may do. The Gurkhas should probably receive and honorable mention - they fight as part of the British army but hail from Nepal, so in a way they could be seen as an unofficial Nepalese army - in which case they would be the best trained and most skilled of any Army in the world, although lacking technology and manpower, they have proved themselves time and again in conflict.
Historically, Britain and America have always been very strong militarily, although Britain has a richer history. Since the official creation of both the British Army, no foreign power has ever managed to invade Britain (although this could also be down to the fact it i an Island nation). The same can be said for the US; once the British left they have had no need to actually defend their country itself - just allies or overseas territories. Compare these two to places that may have faced similar threats militarily, like Russia, France and Germany and their long standing dominance is very impressive.
Going back even further, the title of best Army in the world could be given to the Roman Army, as for several hundreds of years, they were head and shoulders above their nearest rivals. The Greeks might have a claim to having the toughest soldiers in the Spartans, who even today are world renowned as being seriously good fighters (they won one of most one sided battles in History at Thermoplyae in 480BC. Their entire lives were devoted to fighting and training so it's easy to imagine how they were such good fighters.
The Top ten "best" Armies at this time in terms of expenditure and man power, training and equipment.
1. United States
3. United Kingdom
Historically (looking at the most militarily powerful nations of the last few hundred years) the list should probably go;
Additional input from WikiAnswers Contributors:
This question could be interpreted in different ways. If it is asking about the most powerful conventional army in the world, most would say the US. However, many FAQ Farmers interpreted the question to be asking for a subjective opinion on the "best" military. Many people said the armies of their own nation were the best in order to be patriotic. Here are some of the facts and opinions that were given:

RIF is short for Reduction in Force. When the military, Air Force or Army, decides they have too many people for the current defense requirements, they reduce the forces by offering early discharges or retirements. This usually occurs after a war has ended. There was a RIF after the end of the Viet Nam War.
2)First Known use of chemical weapons (mustard Gas)
3)Was known as the Great war before WW2 happened as it was supposed to be the war to end all wars
4)The Assasination of Archduke Ferdinand has been blamed as the catalyst for WW1
5)The sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 bought the US into the war,Despite the Germans leaving a message in the American papers,America sent one anyway.
6)58000 British soldiers were lost in the first day at the battle of the Somme (A Record)
7)Aviation Technology was vastly better after the war than before due to militarists realisng the potential of Air to Land conflict
8)An Armistice was signed ending the war at 5 AM the conflict ended at 11am on the 11.11.1918
9)Hitler fought in ww1 in the German Army.
10)Hitler wasnt happy about the armistice which left Germany destitute and lead to him gaining power so WW1 leads Into WW2 as nobody managed to learn any lessons from the 6 million deaths involved
There is no country with the country code +24(dialed from many places as 00 24). Country codes beginning with +24 have three digits, and are located in Africa. You need one more digit. (See the related questions below.)
(The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.)
the Black Hand, a Serbian nationalist group.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir of the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated by the Black Hand Gang of Serbia, which sparked off the chain of events which lead to the First World War.

Well the force is centripetal force during a body is initially attacked by the tornado,when the body started swinging in the tornado from the surface of the earth,the time when body covers some distance from downward to upward is the time when centrifugal force is applied.... That means tornado have both the centripetal force and centrifugal force.....
ehehe, jokes, idno.
General John J. Pershing married Helen Frances Warren
Helen's father was a United States Senator, Francis E. Warren.
The allies had no strategy after France fell in the Mid 1940. England knew they were next so they just planned to defend. They were not thinking about the future they were just focused on defending themselves. After the Battle of Britain was won Egypt was invaded by a large Italian Army. But it was badly trained and equiped. Britain crushed the Italians but then made a fatal mistake. The send half their army to Greece to help defend it. This caused both forces, the one in Italy and the one in North Africa to be destroyed. General Erwin rommel Rommel's tactical genius led his rather small force to victory. However the Australians held Tobruk for many months. The Allied plan was to now put everything they had into Africa to defeat Rommel. This became even more important when Russia was invaded. Stalin told the allies that he needed a 2nd front to keep Germany bussy while he could reorginize and launch counter offencives. This became much more possible When the US entered the war. A year later the allies had almost defeated Rommel and were ready to invade Italy. Russia was now on the offencive. And in Mid 1943 Germany was on the defencive. In both Russia and Italy. Although Germany managed to keepthe Russia front stable for the most part. Germany would soon have to fight 3 fronts. Operation Overlord, the Invasion of France was a sucess. But simply because of poor German leadership. Rommel was back and incharge of defending France. However his superiors and him had arguements over how the Panzer Divisions should be employed. This caused a defeat for Germany. Despite this failure to place the Panzers properly D-Day could have failed. There were 2 Panzer Divisions near by Normandy. Had they counter attacked immediatly the Invasion could have been repelled but the Panzers were slow to get off and many commanders were in denial about the fact that tens of thousands of ships were comming towards them. Germany simply did not have the strength to fight 3 fronts. However the outcome of the war would have resulted in Germany ruling the world had Hitler lisened to his Generals. Sadly he never did and made foolish mistakes during the war when it came to the battle strategy.
