Question

The War that broke out in 1914 was different from the previous wars in many ways. In this context discuss the following points briefly:

What was the territorial rearrangement of Europe as a result of this War?

Solution

The peace treaties signed after the First World War dramatically altered the political map of the world and of Europe in particular. Three ruling dynasties were destroyed – the Romanovs in Russia during the War itself, the Hohenzollern in Germany and the Hapsburg in Austria-Hungary. Soon after the war, the Ottoman Empire of Turkey ceased to exist. Austria and Hungary became separate independent States and so did Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. Multicultural and multiethnic empires came to an end and in their place largely culturally and ethnically homogenous nation-states emerged. These included Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Yugoslavia. Alsace and Lorraine were restored to France and Schleswig-Holstein were restored to Denmark.
