Infographic World War I 1914-1918 | Infographics Creator | Navigate | Scoop.it
Infographic World War I 1914-1918 Borders, state leaders and military alliances In 1914, the long-established world order began to crack apart, the 19th century system came to an end, and humankind entered a new age of unprecedentedly brutal conflicts in terms of their scale, the number of casualties and destruction. Russia entered this war as an empire with a huge economic potential, expanding industrial production and confidence in its political influence. But Russia lost the war,the Tsar abdicated, the economy was ruined, and the fire of a Civil War swept through the country. After losing four extremely influential empires, the European and global political mosaic reassembled into a new and extremely fragile world order, which inevitably led to World War II. en.ria.ru

Besides investment in sports by those countries who can afford it, the medal tables also reflect a battle for global supremacy in political terms.
