The great misconceptions of ww1

  1. 1. The Great Misconceptions of WW1 By: Sybilla Corea Perkins y Martín Anania
  2. 2. “The killing of Franz Ferdinand was merely the straw that broke the camel's back.” This theory is wrong since the murder of Franz Ferdinand was a very important cause. For Christopher Clark it changed everything, these are the reasons: ● The A-H empire was barely recovering from The Balkans Crisis when Franz Ferdinand was murdered. ● Franz Ferdinand wasn't very known but people were shocked when this happened and later they grew sympathy for him and his wife when they died. ● Franz Ferdinand was “The most outspoken exponents of peace” as Christopher Clark says. He was planning to fire Conrad von Hötzendorf, a count that was causing a lot of trouble, to get more peace, so when the murderers killed him it removed the possibilities for peace. If this had not happened there would have been a lot of possibilities other than war, like the Triple Entente drifting away.
  3. 3. This newspaper shows (it can be seen in the title) that after the war, countries involved in the WW1, were expecting a war.
  4. 4. “The British were naively enthusiastic for war in 1914” A lot of people believed this because there were pictures of people going to the recruiting office and testimonies of people that were happy for war, but actually, when Catriona Pennell researched their responses of 40.000.000 people when the war outbreak, there was no emotional reaction. At first people were shocked but later while they were in the war they realised that Britain needed to fight. People thought that Britain was happy, but it was never proven until this day, after the statistics showed that they were really shocked.
