The 1st "World War" was just an exaggerating term, in fact most countries participated in the War were European nations. Just because Japan, United States and China "joined" in to make it "World War".
The 2nd World War was truly in global scale, most countries around the World took side and participated. Originally there were two separated war, that was European war between Ally and Germany, and War between China and Japan. Only after Pearl Harbour Attack when United States joined Allies formally to make the War really global. Although we often count 1 September 1939 as start of WWII, this was only start of European War. The war really became global since 1942 when Allies began to counter strike back Axis Powers.

There's no mystery about it. All of it is extremely well documented. Watch some of the many excellent documentaries on You Tube.

World wars would be caused by a lot of countries having alliances. The getting 8nto conflict with other large alliances of countries. Bringing large forces to clash.
That would be my idea for world wars causation. Since there were only two.ww you could say it was nationalism and growing need for colonies.
Bigger and better weapons and ease of transportation are obvious. Interconnectivity of materials and money. Also.

You have heard of the expression, "The straw that broke the camel's back"? Usually there are several incidents but then there comes the one that is too much. If you look at WW2 in Europe whenever Hitler started his land grabs England and France did nothing so Hitler continued. When Hitler was told that if he invaded Poland war would be declared. Based on England and France's previous responses Hitler thought this was just another empty threat.
Fast forward to 2019. Kim Jong Un keeps testing short range missiles and Trump just shrugs the tests off. These short range missiles keep getting to be longer and longer range. As long as Trump shows no concern Kim has no reason to suppose that there will be any pushback from the US. One day one of these missile tests fail and blows up a US Navy ship in the area. That would be the last straw.

The economic problem starts with the social problem. In this way, the social problems of different countries will unite and accumulate. In this way, the unity of different countries is formed with certain problems at the collective level. This problem develops on two sides. One party is against that problem and another party is against that problem. Thus began the war between the two parties. This is how the last two world wars of our world developed. In the future, it may be possible to start a war like this.
