This chapter looks at the Muslim world and Europe during World War I. The mechanisms of the political alliances in Europe during the twentieth century, combined with national passions and the sense among many that war was inevitable, reveal how, this time, European diplomacy was unable to avoid a war whose intensity and capacity for destruction was unimaginable. The chapter looks at the major players from the Islamic world who had become involved in the war, particularly as tensions between the European nations as well as the Muslim states chafing under their domination. Hence, the chapter also looks at the Muslim efforts at emancipation from European rule during this time.

Keywords:   World War I, emancipation, political alliances, European diplomacy, Middle East, Great War
