Nationalism Why? - France felt they could win wars simply because theywere French and it was in their blood to conquer and win.- Germany felt they could become a world power and challenged established countries like France and England in the fight to gain African land.- These three countries were essential to the start of WW1 - They were allied with many countriesand one spark could ignite the "fire" to cause an international war Fact: - The assassination ofFranz Ferdinandoccurred on Serbia'sNational Day (June 28) By a Serbian nationalist.
