1. Causes

1.1. England. England was mostly impacted not due to death but in terms of economy. They spent 20-25% of their wealth which left them wounded poor and scarce with food and equipment. This heavily impacted England after the war.

1.2. Russia. Russia was heavily impacted because of the death of millions of soldiers during the war. It was catastrophic for them and nearly turned them into a third world country.

1.3. Germany lost to the allies in WW1 and suffered huge territorial losses giving away its land and population to Poland, Russia, France, Belgium and Denmark and ultimately had to sign The Treaty of Versailles..
