The "Great War" as WW1 was termed depended on the troops and the public's view of national pride, in my opinion. It was not foreseen that the Treaty of Versailles would become such a punishing peace treaty. The treaty met all the demands of the nationalism of the two great European powers, France & England. That nationalism fueled the fighting spirits of the soldiers on both sides seems to be a given product to this 1914 to 1918 war.

Nationalism is a sense of devotion and a desire to bring about independence or forward progress to one's country.

As of its effect on World War I, Gavrilo Princip was the man who assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which sparked a chain of events that led to the First World War. Princip was a Yugoslav nationalist. He desired Yugoslavian independence from Austria, from which Ferdinand was from.
