You need the first two pages of this revision document.
Alliances and Arms Race are long-term causes.
Morocco, Agadir and Bosnia are medium-term causes.
Sarajevo, Schlieffen and Slide to War are short-term causes.

Does this help?

I think you should try Greenfield History site.

oh, and if this helps, heres a few facts on world war 1:


1 IT WAS 1914-1918.
2)First Known use of chemical weapons (mustard Gas)
3)Was known as the Great war before WW2 happened as it was supposed to be the war to end all wars
4)The Assasination of Archduke Ferdinand has been blamed as the catalyst for WW1
5)The sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 bought the US into the war,Despite the Germans leaving a message in the American papers,America sent one anyway.
6)58000 British soldiers were lost in the first day at the battle of the Somme (A Record)
7)Aviation Technology was vastly better after the war than before due to militarists realisng the potential of Air to Land conflict
8)An Armistice was signed ending the war at 5 AM the conflict ended at 11am on the 11.11.1918

Thanks for the plug!
Do I take it you are starting GCSE History in September? You will really enjoy it, and perhaps find out much more about the First World War.
Best wishes.

PS I have split off your post about getting a 'jump start' and made it into a topic on its own here.
