In GCSE History one topic studied is World War One and one aspect of this that is looked at is the build up to the war. This is the first of two quizzes on that subject focussing in particular on the increase in tensions between powers prior to the beginning of the war.
Prior to the outbreak of World War One there were already problems in Europe. From the accession of the German Emperor, and the dismissal of the German Chancellor Bismarck, there was an increase in tensions between European powers, who eventually split between two hostile alliances. These differences were exacerbated by colonial rivalries, an arms race and regular crises.
