From the Paper:

"The basic elements and themes of this chapter deal primarily with the system of entangling alliances between the great powers of Europe which led to the carnage of The Great War. Stoessinger examines and analyzes the motivations of Russia to stand by their fellow Serbs in the Balkans, the aspirations of Imperial Germany to acquire an empire and build a battle fleet equal to Great Britain, and the determination of the French to restore French national pride after the debacle of the Franco-Prussian War and to recover the lost regions of Alsace and Lorraine.
"In the process, Stoessinger notes that the nations of Europe went to war in 1914 not necessarily because they wanted to or even chose to, but because the alliances they had formulated to protect themselves and prevent war served instead to destroy them by dragging them into war."
