WWI World War One I. Causes of the “Great War” A. Direct Reason 1. Direct reason: the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir to the Austrian-Hungarian throne, on June 28, 1914, in Bosnia. B. Indirect Reason C. 1. Indirect reasons were more important than the direct reason, even without the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, other events will spark the war due to the following indirect reasons: A. The spread of nationalism Nationalism was ideas and feelings that bound citizens to their country and led them to obey their government and, when called upon, to willingly kill the citizens of other countries; Nationalism was deeply rooted in European culture. B.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
