The First World War 07

See how much you know in our final KS3 History quiz on the First World War. During the First World War, technology began to produce new offensive weapons, such as the tank. Britain and France were its primary users; the Germans employed captured Allied tanks. The first tanks were unreliable and unpleasant to drive. They were more likely to break down than to be destroyed by the enemy.

On November 11th 1918, an armistice with Germany was signed in a railway carriage at Compi├Ęgne. In theory, Germany and the Allies were still at war until the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919. Legally, the war with Germany lasted until 10th January 1920. Several other treaties were signed with the other countries and the geography of Europe changed significantly. Germany had no say in the conditions of the Treaty of Versailles. As a result, the people of Germany felt they had not been treated with justice. They had to pay large sums of money to the Allies as compensation. This resentment allowed Adolf Hitler to come to power in the 1930s and was a major factor contributing to the Second World War.
