Friendship Chain

1)A- Serbia,B-  Austria-Hungary, C- Russia, D-  Germany, E-  France, F- Britain

2)The country circled in yellow are Germany and Austria and they are in an alliance. The people in blue are Serbia, Russia, France and Britain and they are in their own separate alliance, where they help each other for wars and fighting but not to help each other develop. Serbia is the smallest, because they’re the newest and didn’t have any military background, and until Russia helped, they were being picked on by Austria.

3_When Austria’s leader goes to Bosnia he gets assassinated, and Austria blamed Serbia for this. Serbia denies being guilty and Austria says if they don’t find who killed him they will take military actions, and Germany decides to help Austria. Austria and Germany go at war with Serbia but to get there they attacked a neutral territory Belgium which caused tons of other small wars.

4)Germany, France and Britain all start fighting because of the war over Serbia, because France and Germany always had rivalry.

5)Britain fought Germany, because they had an alliance with Russia and that caused more problems that they already had.

6)Serbia gets accused for the assassination of Austria’s leader, and they deny it which sparks problems. Austria declares if they don’t find the person then they will give military action. Germany agrees and helps Austria, Russia, France and Britain all help Serbia and this caused Germany and Austria to have war against France and Britain. Since Canada was a part of the British Empire, they are now in the war.

7)The perspective is from the triple entante and the people who are helping Serbia. Germany was geared up in the picture, because they were ready to fight Serbia and anyone in the triple entante. In Austrias cartoon they say “if you move I’ll” which shows that Austria is literally picking on Serbia, because they’re smaller than them and they can just push them around.
