There is much struggle for power in Balkans. Europeans take pride in their country so they're fighting for their power. Nationalism is leading to imperialism as a quest for empires. Germany begins to build a navy that can take on the strongest Royal Navy. Germany is supplying their troops with weapons. Soon it became a rise of militarism. Germany wants to form an alliance with Austria-Hungary and Italy, this partnership is known as the Triple Alliance. The assassination of Archduke makes Europe and Austria break into war. Later, Germany crossed Belgium's border. French troops purchased machine guns as weapons against German's. Kaiser promised his troops they will come home before leaves fall. They dug trenches to keep safe, trench warfare is a strategy. In order to defeat allies, poison gas is created. Using tanks had limited success going through No Man's Land. Airplanes have become in use during war because they are able to map enemy positions from above. Stalemate ended in a stand off.
