There were a lot of reasons about what were the causes of world war 1 but the original reasoning was of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the austro-hungarian throne. On thing led to another and soon there was an out break between Austria-hungarian, Russia, Germany, France, Britain, Italy, and America seemed caught in the middle of it. During the world war 1 alliances were made for good and for bad.
Along side the nationalism which encouraged the military strength that was used against the opposing countries and for the alliance countries. Nationalism also weakened the eastern European Countries of Austria,Hungary, Russia, and Turkey. They ruled many national groups that urged for independence. The Balkan Peninsula or the "Powder Keg of Europe" because tensions there threatened to start a major war. Rivalry for control of the Balkans added to the tensions that erupted into World War 1.
