Top best answers to the question «Why did germany invade belgium in world war 1»
- Germany invaded Belgium to get to France. Germany and France had a longstanding feud over an area of land called Alsace-Lorraine. They were in opposing alliances prior to the Great War. Germany knew it must defeat France and Britain on the Western Front to win the war.
- Germany declared war on France. To avoid the French fortifications along the French-German border, the troops had to cross Belgium and attack the French Army by the north. Of course, Belgians refused to let them through, so the Germans decided to enter by force and invaded Belgium on Aug. 4, 1914.
