Conclusion In retrospect, the alliance system, nationalistic, imperialistic, and militaristic events preceding 1914 were significant causes and developments leading to the onset of World War 1. Although there were various other factors concerning the outbreak of the First World War, the four concepts mentioned above were certainly several of the most prominent factors. The nationalistic movement of Pan-Slavism along with the Balkan Wars and the Moroccan Crisis were all key components in establishing the inexorable outbreak of the First World War. World War 1 reshaped the economic, political, and social structures throughout all of Europe and the world. The cost of war and the willingness of leaders to go far with their interests, demolished the economy and broke the will of citizens.

    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.
