Allied Powers

Allies of World War l

July 1914 - November 1918

There were four main causes to World War l: militarism, alliances, imperialism, and nationalism. Archduke Francis Ferdinand assassination on June 28, 1914 was the trigger of World War l.

The war began as a local war between Austria-Hungary and Serbia in 1914 the grew into a war involving 32 countries.

The purpose of the Allied Powers was to defend allied countries from the Central Powers.

In 1907 the Entente Alliance was the French Republic, British Empire, and the Russian Empire, they were the countries that were against the Central powers.

Italy ended the alliance with the Central Powers and joined the Entente Alliance in 1915, and entered the war arguing that Germany and Austria-Hungary started the war.

Many other countries that were affiliated with the Entente Alliance compromise, and together formed the Allied powers

America joined the Allied Powers and the war very late, on April 6, 1917. Germany had violated the neutrality by attacking international shipping and sending the Zimmerman Telegram to Mexico. Then in December 1917 the United States declared war on Austria-Hungary.

Being part of the Allied Powers during World War I, gained the US allies during future wars.

World War I set the tone for advancement in war technology. Some technical advancements was the tank, flamethrowers, poison gas, tracer bullets, Interrupter gear (guns on airplane that were able to shoot in between the propellers), depth charges, and aircraft carrier. Which today most of these things are still used, just even more advanced. With all this new technology there came totally different kind of warfare.

The Allied powers were the countries that opposed the central powers during World War 1. But in World War 2 for example the Allied powers were fighting against the Axis Powers. Italy and Japan fought for the Axis Powers even though they fought for the Allied Powers in World War 1.
