Reasons that led to World War I questions
Q What led to World War I?
A World War I was fought between 1914
and 1918. It was the longest, costliest and
most violent war the world had seen. It
involved most European countries and the

growing overseas colonies and trade rivalries
led to intense nationalistic feelings
throughout Europe. The Industrial
Revolution led to a need for more and more
raw materials. Once the goods were made,
their makers needed new markets to sell these
goods to, and countries rivalled each other
for markets. Each country built up a large
army to safeguard its interests and to strike
fear into its opponents.

from France in 1905–6. There was more
tension when Austria-Hungary took over
Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Balkans in
1908. On 28 June 1914, Archduke Francis
Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian and
Hungarian thrones, was assassinated in
Sarajevo, Bosnia by a Serb called Gavrilo

Q What were the trenches?
A Very early during the course of World
War I, the armies found out that with new
weaponry, they could dig even a shallow hole

their soldiers could stay and defend their
territory. As the war went on, the trenches
