  • World War I - People developing greater awareness and pride in their ethnic rather than national heritage, balance of power in Europe offsetting, unification of Germany, political instability.

    World War II - Germans angry about how they were treated after World War I and Hitler's "master race". Some historians suggest that World War II was just another half of World War I after a 31-year hiatus.

    By the way, the person you selected as MHO has their dates INCREDIBLY wrong. World War I lasted from 1914 until 1918.

  • World war 1: Imperialism. Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914. that sparked a lot of anti imperialism across Europe . Plus Germany wanted to keep on growing.
    World War 2: Fascism. Mussolini and Hitler came to prominence in the 1920's. Mussolini was the first Facsist Dictator to take power. In 1933 Hitler was voted in as Furher of Germany. They both wanted to annex other countries to create master races. Italy wanted the Middle East and North Africa. Hitler wanted Europe and The Soviet Union. And Japan wanted the Pacific/Asia. Hitler and Japan also wanted the US later on. The main reason Japan attacked us in 1941 was because we cuff of trade of oil to them

  • WW1: Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand
    WW2: Italian fascism in the 1920s, Japanese militarism and invasions of China in the 1930s, and especially the political takeover in 1933 of Germany by Hitler and his Nazi Party and its aggressive foreign policy.

  • WW1 trigger was the assassination of Franz Ferdinand which lead to Austria-Hungary declaring war against Serbia

    WW2 trigger was Hitler invading Poland leading to both Britian and France declaring war on Germany.
