Wwi the three fronts

WWI: The Three “Fronts”

1914-1916


Western front

Western Front

  • English Channel – Swiss Alps (198 miles)

  • After declarations of war in July-August 1914, governments made their opening moves:

    • A-H opened fire on Serbia

    • Russia mobilized

    • Britain prepared its forces

    • Schlieffen Plan - Germany

  • Failures were followed by a “race to the sea,” which resulted in construction of trenches  STALEMATE!


Eastern front

Eastern Front

  • Russia, Austria-Hungary, Turkey

  • After Russia mobilized quickly, Germany had to divert troops East

  • Limited success

  • Pattern  Russians could defeat Austrians, but not the Germans, and Germans had to keep coming to aide of Austrians

  • Russia’s position worsened once Turkey joined (cut main supply route through the Dardanelles)


Diversionary fronts

Diversionary Fronts

  • Balkan Front

    • Bulgaria joins; Allies launch offensive

  • Italian Front

    • Placed heavy burden on Austrians (deploy ½ of forces)

  • Turkey & Middle East Fronts

    • Allies attempt to force Turkish surrender  aide Russia!

  • War in Colonial Territories
