Countries such as France, Belgium, Italy and Great Britain had colonies in Africa during the scramble for Africa

Great Britain covered almost 1/5th of Africa


Germany and Austria-Hungary were very militaristic countries

To Keep their military power, both countries feel like their military force has to be equal or more.

The selective service act in the States gained them 3 million more people to join their army.


The countries believed that they are better than others

Nations became more agressive

Citizens supported their country, no country wanted to back down from the war.
