FLASH BACK NEWS: On This Day August 23, 1914; Japan declared war on Germany in World War I

World War 1 occurred between July 1914 and November 11, 1918. By the end of the war, over 17 million people were killed including over 100,000 American troops. The reason why war erupted is actually much
more complicated than a simple list of causes.

Over time, countries throughout Europe made mutual defense agreements that would pull them into battle. These treaties meant that if one country was attacked, allied countries were bound to defend them. Before World War 1, the following alliances existed:

• Russia and Serbia
• Germany and Austria-Hungary
• France and Russia
• Britain and France and Belgium
• Japan and Britain

Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, Russia got involved to defend Serbia. Germany seeing Russia mobilizing, declared war on Russia. France was then drawn in against Germany and Austria-Hungary. Germany attacked France through Belgium pulling Britain into war.

The immediate cause of World War I ( Though, includes alliances, imperialism, militarism, nationalism) was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary. In June 1914, a Serbian-nationalist terrorist group called the Black Hand sent groups to assassinate the Archduke.
On this day August 23, 1914 Japan declared War on Germany. Japan was looking to expand it's territory in the east. Germany's base at Qingdao was isolated and therefore an easy target. The Japanese declared war on Germany because they had recently renewed an alliance with Britain.
