“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets” Voltaire, a French enlightenment philosopher, once said on the topic of war. This is precisely what happened in the First World War, millions of people from many different countries fighting for their country, their pride, their future well-being, their glory. With a total number of about nine million casualties, this is one of the deadliest wars in our history. This is why it is important to analyze and understand this war, and to fully grasp the reason why this all happened. To do this, we must understand all the causes of this war, and we must go in depth to all the tension that was caused by the events leading up to the war.
