The major battles of the war included the Battle of the Somme, the Battle of Verdun, and the First Battle of the Marne. It was an incredibly deadly conflict that lasted three years.

In the early part of the war, the Central Powers were comprised of the Ottoman Empire, Russia, and Austria-Hungary. The Triple Entente was composed of France, Great Britain, and Italy. The Triple Entente also allied with Serbia.

In the early part of the war, Russia, Austria-Hungary, and France supported Germany. The Triple Entente soon declared war on Serbia. In the early parts of the war, the Russian Empire lost much of its western frontier.
