EUROPEAN IMPERIALISM IN AFRICA

Archduke Ferdinand

Causes

The Austria-Hungary government saw the assassination as a direct attack on the country. They believed that the Serbians had helped the Bosnian terrorists in the attack. They made harsh demands on the Serbians which the Serbians rejected. At the same time, Russia began to mobilize their army to help protect Serbia. When Serbia rejected the demands, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. A few days later, Germany declared war on Russia to help its ally Austria-Hungary. Then France began to mobilize to help its ally Russia, and Germany followed by declaring war on France. World War I had begun.

Effects

After more than four years of the war, the Great War ended on November 11, 1918, after Germany, the last of the Central Powers, surrendered to the Allies. At the peace conference in Paris in 1919, Allied leaders would state their desire to build a post-war world that was safe from future wars of such enormous scale. The Versailles Treaty, signed on June 28, 1919, tragically failed to achieve this objective. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s grand dreams of an international peace-keeping organization faltered when put into practice as the League of Nations. Even worse, the harsh terms imposed on Germany, the war’s biggest loser, led to widespread resentment of the treaty and its authors in that country–a resentment that would culminate in the outbreak of the Second World War two decades later.

Fascism

Causes

The economic collapse, and the political instability caused by World War I led the rise of fascism in Europe to World War II. The Nazi version of fascism was dedicated to the reversal of the Versailles Treaty and the establishment of a German Empire by means of war and conquest.

Effects

Fascism had terrible effects. One of the most well known was the Holocaust. The Holocaust resulted in the deaths of over 17 million people. 6 million were Jews and the rest were others that were different in Hitlers mind. Other effects can be total control by the government, leader, or dictator. Another effect of fascism would be war. Hitler started to conquer parts of Europe and it led to WWII which devastated Germany, Japan, The United States, and Europe.

What Is Fascism?

Appeasement

Causes

As everyone was afraid to start another war, appeasement was preferred then, but then led to an outbreak of a World War 2, as Hitler became more demanding and took advantage of the situation which eventually led to an outbreak of war.

Effects

If Britain and France had taken action quickly after Germany had begun to act out, then they could have easily defeated Hitler. While the goal of Appeasement was to bring peace, it really just gave the enemy(Germany) more power and freedom to prepare for an inevitable war.

Appeasement Leading to World War II

Holocaust

Causes

The Jews presence in the German occupied parts of Europe was seen as a problem and a great annoyance. At best, they were to disappear from the face of the earth, so that the Nazis could reach their goal: a Greater Germany free from Jews.

Effects

Many Jewish survivors feared to return to their former homes because of the antisemitism (hatred of Jews) that persisted in parts of Europe and the trauma they had suffered. Some who returned home feared for their lives. In postwar Poland.

  • The United States wanted to force Japan's surrender as quickly as possible to minimize American casualties.The United States needed to use the atomic bomb before the Soviet Union entered the war against Japan to establish US dominance afterwards
  • The United States wanted to use the world's first atomic bomb for an actual attack and observe its effect.
  • Effects
  • More than forty percent of the city was destroyed. Major hospitals had been utterly flattened and care for the injured was impossible. Schools, churches, and homes had simply disappeared. Transportation was impossible.
