Rare WWI German Footage

The Great War, World War One, consisted of two stages: conventional warfare that lasted from 1914 to 1916, and a war of desperate expedients, when both sides struggled for their own existences, lasting until the end.

The two sides of the war consisted of the Allied Powers (France, Great Britain, Russia, the United States, and other smaller counties) and the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary,  and Turkey/Ottoman Empire, along with other smaller country support).

Though Germany turned out to be the Central Power most involved in the war, there is little or no evidence that the Germans had planned for war.  There are several fundamental causes that had brought the world to the brink of war: nationalism, imperialist competition, militarism, and the build up of pre-war alliances.  These growing appearance of these factors perhaps inevitably led to what was called the Great War, World War One.
