This is not just an arms race, but also a government's attitude of mind, seeing war as a valid means of foreign policy. This often includes the influence of government by the generals.
All the nations of Europe were militaristic, but the governments of Germany and Austria-Hungary were especially so. All the countries of Europe built up their armies and navies. Intheir armed forces stood like this: Germany and Britain clashed over the size of their navies - in Kaiser Wilhelm began to build up the German navy Tirpiz's Navy Law Central europe essay, announcing that he wanted Germans to sail all over the world and take for Germany 'a place in the sun'.
Afterhe began to build numbers of the new, large 'Dreadnought' battleships, which were more powerful than any other ship. The British developed the idea that Germany wanted to challenge British sea power - the basis of Britain's greatness cf 'Britannia rules the waves'.
A strong navy would also allow Germany to threaten British colonies overseas. Britain made an alliance with Japan inso as not to have to worry so much about the Pacific. Britain also began to build Dreadnoughts.

I believe war is unavoidable; war the sooner the better. But we ought to do more to press to prepare the popularity of a war against Russia. The Kaiser supported this.
Tirpitz [head of the navy] said that the navy would prefer to see the postponement of the great fight for one and a half years. From the Diary of Admiral Muller, 8 December Some historians say that this proves that Germany was wanting war inalthough others say that it records a general discussion of no great significance.
Alliances As well as seeking protection in the size of their armies, the countries of Europe sought protection by forming alliances. At first, Bismarck had kept Germany friendly with Russia. France in made an alliance with Russia, and b. In Britain made a naval treaty with Japan. The countries of Europe thought that the alliance system would act as a deterrent to war; in fact it tied the countries together so that, when one country went to war, the others felt themselves obliged to follow.January Since the s, economic inequality in the US has increased dramatically.
