This what a plane would look like if it were in world war 1.
This is what an air battle might of looked liked
This is what they wore in the war for breathing non-toxic air.
The Beginning (the beginning before the beginning)
Austria-Hungary the starters of all the ruckus started teaming up with Germany to raid Serbia in 1914 July 28. 3 Days later Germany declares war on Russia. 2 days later Germany declares war on France as part of the Schlieffen Plan. The previous day Germany invaded Belgium and France declares War on Germany.
What Transpired During the War?
The battle of Verdun against Germany and France begins. The French winning means one part of the German army is defeated. Now on May 31st the largest naval battle starts. Fought in the North Sea. The battle of Jutland is underway. With the British at one side and Germany at the other. It was an equal fight. The battle of Somme begins on July 1st. Over 1,000,000 soldiers wounded or dead.
The British intercept the message from Germany to convince Mexico to join the war. Now the U.S. is joining the war. On March 8th the Russian Revolution begins. On March 15th Tsar Nicolas the 2nd is put out of order. On April 6th the USA enters the war and declares war on Germany. On November 7th the Bolsheviks led by Vladimir Lenin overthrow the Russian Government. On December 17th the Russians agree to peace with the Central powers and exit the war.
The impact that it made was obviously big. It made WW2, the atomic bomb making, The Great Depression etc. It had such an impact some people still talk about it today. It cost over 200 billion dollars in repair money! Over 10 million people were killed. That was more than any other war. Now about the sides.
About the Sides
To start with the side with the most impact on the war, Germany. They obviously were one of the hardest sides to take down but, The British managed to take them down. Next the USA. They came in late but they helped defeat Germany. That was awesome. Still one more big team. The British. They had come in early was one of the last teams to leave. Taking out Germany and Russia. That’s all the news and I’ll be back next time.
