While America secured its increasingly far-flung empire, Europe reached a crisis stage.� It is probably wishful thinking to see either of the 20th century’s World Wars as little other than imperial conflicts, as latecomers to the game wanted their share of the global spoils, but the more established players kept the plunder for themselves.� Instead of merely raping the world’s non-industrialized peoples, it was white armies and navies fighting each other, while the colonial lands were milked for soldiers and supplies.� G ermans trounced French armies in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-1871, which saw France humiliated with the capture of Napoleon III, the siege of Paris, an occupying German army, and a heavy war indemnity levied on France, which France paid.� From then until 1914, there was peace in Europe.� It was not a restful peace.� During the 1880s and 1890s, the French, English, and Russians formed the Triple Entente, and Germany, Austria, and Italy formed the Triple Alliance.� Those would be the major players of World War I, which began with conflict in the Balkans.� World War I would be the bloodiest war the world had ever seen, at least until the next one.� Far more than 20 million people died in World War I, and about half of them were civilians.
