Responses Response Author Date/Time Causes of WW1 Professor Jones 4/29/2016 3:57:08 PM Before we approach the outcome of WW1 we want to consider what happened and why. What role did nationalism play in the outbreak of WW1? What about imperialism and militarism? What are some other causes? RE: Causes of WW1 Professor Jones 5/1/2016 7:59:58 AM What was the most important cause of WW1? Why do you think so? RE: Causes of WW1 Alivea VanDyke 5/2/2016 8:07:58 PM In grade school, we learned MAIN. Militarism, alliances, imperialism, and nationalism are the reasons the war began. Each area wanted more power and land so they were building up their military to fight in this situation. They were increasing and training their military to win so both went into battle trying to protect their colonies. However, I do also think imperialism had a huge role as well. Both colonies were taking over territories to redeem more power which resulted in a war. RE: Causes of WW1 Professor Jones 5/3/2016 10:04:38 AM Of these, which was the most important? Why?

How did more specific nationalist identities play a role in the war? RE: Causes of WW1 Kristy Kelly 5/4/2016 6:51:30 PM After reading about WW1, I believe Nationalism was the most important cause. It is because of nationalism, confidence was so high, to the extreme of arrogance, and this set European rivals against each other. Kristy RE: Causes of WW1 Rhonda Miller 5/4/2016 7:34:30 PM According to this weeks lesson nationalism lead the world to war. It was most evident in Serbia. Serbia wanted its independence from Russia as an independent Slavic state. Russia supported their efforts and called it pan-Slavism, but threatened old empires of Ottoman Turks and Austro Hungarians. Unrest made the Balkans the powder keg of Europe.
