26 Historical Photos Of World War And German & Allied Soldiers

In terms of human technological history, the scale of the two "world wars" was enabled by the technological advances of the second industrial revolution and the resulting globalization that allowed global power projection and mass production of military hardware, but wars on such a scale have not been repeated due to the onset of the atomic age and the resulting danger of mutually assured destruction. It had been recognized that the complex system of opposing alliances the German, Austro-Hungarian, and Ottoman empires against the British, Russian, French empires was likely to lead to a world-wide conflict in the event of war breaking out. Due to this fact, a very minute conflict between two countries had the potential to set off a domino effect of alliances, triggering a world war. The fact that the powers involved had large overseas empires virtually guaranteed that such a war would be world-wide, as the colonies' resources would be a crucial strategic factor. Wikipedia
