The Causes and Effects of World War I What were the causes and effects of World War I The answer to this seemingly simple question is not easy There was more to the onset of the war then the event of an Austrian prince being murdered in Serbia as is what most people consider to be the cause of World War I Furthermore the effects of the war were not just concentrated to a post-war era lasting for a generation of Westerners No the effects of the war were widespread throughout the world and can be traced to generations after the war It is not a rare occasion that when a person is asked what the causes of World War I were that they answer with the simple comment of an Austrian Prince being shot in Serbia However the assignation of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in Sarajevo was not the main cause of the Great War Rather it was the breaking point for Austria in its dealings with Serbia The truth of the matter is that several factors played a role in the outbreak of the catastrophic war the engulfed the nations of Europe for over four years World War I truly was the result of building aggressions among the countries of Europe which was backed by the rise of nationalism To add to the disastrous pot there was also imperial competition along with the fear of war prompting military alliances and an arms race All of these increased the escalating tensions that lead to the outbreak of a world war Mckay pg 904
