Revision tip and answer preparation
Look back through the pages in this topic and sort the evidence that suggests:
- either that Germany played a significant part in causing World War One
- or that Germany's role was just one factor among many
You will find that there is evidence for both views.
As part of your revision, think about the arguments and facts you would use to explain:
- how and why the assassination of Franz Ferdinand led to the outbreak of war in 1914
- what role Kaiser Wilhelm II played in the development of hostility in Europe
