World War 1: France 1900-1914 - Prezi

This chapter deals with Scottish politics between 1900 and 1914 and its impact on working-class women. The Labour Party was even less successful in Scotland than in other parts of the country. In the second decade of the 20th century there was a flowering of socialist and labour organizations, which spearheaded a number of campaigns attracting widespread popular support for the Labour Party among the working class. The issues around which these campaigns were conducted ranged from the housing question and unemployment to school meals and the medical inspection of school children. The largest of the working-class women's organizations, the SCWG, was not only aimed at housewives, but more particularly at the wives of better-off sections of the working class.

Causes of WWI - growing crisis - John D Clare

Three presidents during 1900 and 1914 The Franco- Prussian War! Franco-Prussian War or Franco-German War started in 1870 and it continued for a year, 1870–71, conflict between France and Prussia that signaled the rise of German military power and imperialism. It was provoked by Otto von Bismarck (the Prussian chancellor) as part of his plan to create a unified German Empire. On July 19, 1870, France declared war on Prussia. The south German states, in fulfillment of their treaties with Prussia, immediately joined King William in a common front against France. The French were only able to mobilize about 200,000 troops; the Germans, however, quickly marshaled an army of about 400,000 men. On August 12 the French emperor handed the supreme command over to Bazaine, who was badly beaten in the great battles of Vionville (August 15) and Gravelotte (August 18), and forced into Metz. There he was besieged by two German armies. MacMahon then was ordered to relieve Metz. On August 30 the Germans surprised and defeated MacMahon's leading corps at Beaumont, and crushed France and won the battle. At this point France was clearly republican, it was not in love with its Third Republic. Governments collapsed with regularity, rarely lasting more than a couple of months, as radicals, socialists, liberals, conservatives, republicans and monarchists all fought for control Though France was clearly republican, it was not in love with its Third Republic. When France was finally liberated, few called for the restoration of the Third Republic, and a Constituent Assembly was established in 1946 to draft a constitution for a successor, established as the Fourth Republic that December. France and Germany Germany was a part of the triple alliance, therefore against France which was a part of triple entente. Two days after declaring war on Russia, on august 3rd,1914, Germany declares war on France, moving ahead with a long-held strategy, conceived by the former chief of staff of the German army, Alfred von Schlieffen, for a two-front war against France and Russia. Hours later, France makes its own declaration of war against Germany, readying its troops to move into the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, which it had forfeited to Germany in the settlement that ended the Franco-Prussian War in 1871. Germany had been drawing up their plan for war, the Schlieffen plan, since 1897. It worked on the basis that they would be at war with Russia and France at the same time.
