Podcast concerning the Entente’s role and the development of its strategy and actions during the First World War. The war began in August 1914 with a loose partnership initially between three powers, Great Britain, France, and Russia, and later Italy, which joined the war in 1915. The first and most important determinant factor in what the Great Powers did was the question of what they were fighting for. Each had different war aims, but in the treaty of London, signed in September 1914, the members of the Entente agreed not to make a separate peace. The three powers thus bound themselves to fight for each others’ war aims, and this by itself ensured that the war would be long, hard, and bloody.
