The Setting of World War I

Picture
World War I took place mainly in central Europe. While countries from all over the world were involved, most of the battles were fought along the France-Germany boarder. If at any point during your stay at this website you become confused about countries or alliances be sure to refer back to this map.

The main Allied powers, the ones that were in charge of the treaty, are The United States, England, France, Italy, and Japan.

The Central powers are solely Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire, though it is important to note that none of these countries were involved in drafting the Treaty.
