World War I: Power struggles in Europe


There is perhaps a more inefficient solution to a dispute that a war? European center of culture and development, land of philosophers. But fools ruled by ambition and pride inexhaustible unalterable,
succumbed in the worst delivery decisions million of his men to die in a war where everyone lost. At least the human race learned his lesson ... or not?  

The First World War or Great War was an armed conflict that took place between 1914 and 1918 and produced more than 10 million casualties. Over 60 million European soldiers were mobilized from 1914 to 1918.Originado in Europe by the rivalry between the imperialist powers, became the first military conflict to cover more than half the planet. Was once the bloodiest in history. Before the Second World War, this war used to be called the Great War or War of Wars. War was the most damaging in history after the Second World War

The war began as a conflict between Austria-Hungary and Serbia for the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne (Author's note: at least that's the official version). Russia joined the conflict, it was considered the protector of the Slavic countries and wished to undermine the position of Austria-Hungary in the Balkans. Germany responded to the war with Russia, bound by a confidentiality agreement entered into with the Habsburg monarchy, and France moved to support its ally.
