How Far Was Kaiser Wilhelm II Responsible for the Outbreak of the First World War?

Answer

Kaiser Wilhelm II, Kaiser of Germany in 1888, was responsible for the outbreak of the First World War by dismissing the then Chancellor Prince Otto von Bismarck. He dismantled the alliance system and encouraged an aggressive foreign policy. He was mentally unstable, unfit to rule and was obsessed with military matters and over-reliance on military advisers.

First you can start off with his personality. He was impatient, gullible, indecisive, and overall not the sharpest tool in the shed. He defered to ministers and militaristic elites
