Origins of World War 1

Origins of World War 1

Your honor, the defense has proven with out a doubt that Germany is not responsible for the outbreak of WW1. The argument should be stated instead that which country in Europe tried to prevent a war from happening.

The answer is none. In fact every country in this room, your honor had a vital part to play in the coming of war.
