The essay includes 10-12 pages of footnoted text (footnotes placed at the bottom of the page) plus two illustrations with captions and a bibliography.

Your pre-essay work is vital to your final essay. Review the professor's comments on your topic statement, primary source analysis, thesis statement, and annotated bibliography of primary and secondary sources. Do not repeat mistakes.

Include an introduction with a thesis statement, the chronologically developed main portion of the paper, and a conclusion. Do not add new information to the conclusion, but use it to summarize and analyze your ideas. Remember to write in a chronological fashion, using past tense, active voice verbs. Always add dates in a History paper! Remember to include the full name and title of a person when he/she is first mentioned. Use the person's last name from henceforth.

The Mechanics:

Create a separate Word document and attach it to your Assignments submission. Label it: Last name, Final Essay.
Do not include a cover page. Place your name, class, and date in the upper-right corner.
Include a title, centered on the page.
Number each page consecutively in the upper-right corner.
Use a readable 12-point font, such as Times New Roman or Courier New.
Double-space the paper; do not space four times between paragraphs. Indent each paragraph five spaces.
All footnotes must be numbered consecutively and placed at the bottom of the page. Do not use endnotes. Remember: You must use the Chicago Manual of Style format. In every job you have, you will have to learn new programs and systems.
Include two historical illustrations, with captions under the illustrations that identify them, and give the complete citation. Maps may be essential to understanding your topic.
Include a bibliography at the end of the paper, divided into primary and secondary sources.
Write 10-12 pages of footnoted text. The two illustrations and bibliography are extra pages. Write complete, clear sentences. Use the active voice, past tense. Avoid weak, unclear "to be" verbs and verb phrases.
Remember: Write a neutral paper. Do not use "I," "we," "our country," "the dear old US of A."
Avoid slang and informal speech. You are being trained to write well for your careers.
Know the difference between the possessive and the plural usage of words.
Rely on a dictionary and a thesaurus. Avoid repeating words.
Proofread the paper before you submit it.
Do not add it to the textbox; it will be returned ungraded. Attach it as a Word document when you submit it to your Assignment folder.
Remember, if you need help: ASK.
Note: if you want your professor to review your draft, submit it no later than February 22, 2016. I will edit it and return it promptly.

The assassinations of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne and his pregnant wife, Countess Sophie Chotek in Sarajevo, Bosnia on June 28, 1914 during their review of the troops served as one of the immediate causes of World War I. However, a war cannot be blamed on this sole event as consequent actions exercised greater influence on the beginning of the war. Among these included the system of pre-war alliances, rising nationalism, Germany’s “blank check” assurances to Austria-Hungary, Austria-Hungary’s ultimatum to Serbia, Serbia’s reply, and Russian military mobilization. In this paper, an analysis of the series of events that led to World War I is presented.

World War I was an imminent clash between proud empires, old enemies and newly formed alliances and was feared as “the war to end all wars”. It saw the stand-off of two opposing factions: The Triple Entente (Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy) and The Triple Alliance (France, Russia and Great Britain). Past and ongoing conflicts, treaties, diplomatic maneuvering and furtive agreements were instrumental in the eventual formation of these alliances.

One of the earliest alliances in Europe was the League of the Three Emperors (1873 to 1887) between the German Empire, the Russian Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Otto Eduard Leopold, also known as Otto von Bismarck (1 April 1815 – 30 July 1898), the German chancellor, envisioned that Germany would gain more through peace and thus promoted the formation of this entente (which had no formal treaties). He was responsible for swinging a majority of European affairs (and wars) through his approach of balance of power in order to maintain Germany’s position of power....
