HansMustermann's explanation seems reasonable. I do not expect too much controversy concerning the causes of WW1.

To sum it up: Europe was a theater of competing powers. Nobody really wanted a big all-out war, it happened more or less by accident.

Far more interesting is how WW1 ended, how America came involved, Versailles, etc. This is where the real controversy will emerge, I predict.
