The Road to War

Austria-Hungary's Bad Foreign Policy

As many people know, Austria-Hungary played a major part in the first world war.  Their foreign policy and their alliances had a major part in this.  The government of Austria-Hungary had an alliance with Germany and an alliance with the Ottoman empire.  If these alliances did not exist, then most likely the only people fighting in the Great War (World War I) would have been Austria-Hungary and Serbia.
