The First World War started in the year 1914. The War started in the summer of that year, and was triggered off when an assassin's bullet felled Archduke Ferdinand on 28 June, 1914. Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the Inspector of the Austro-Hungarian army, and went to the Austrian provinces of Bosnia-Herzegovina to watch military maneuvers at the invitation of General Oskar Potiorek, the Governor of the said provinces. On that fateful day, the Archduke and his wife, Duchess Sophie von Chotkovato, survived one assassination attempt, but succumbed to the next, felled by the bullets fired by Gavrilo Princip, a member of the Black hand, a group opposed to Bosnia-Herzegovina being under Austro-Hungarian rule. The Austro-Hungarians demanded that the three men who were supposedly behind the plot and residents of Serbia, be handed over by the Serbian government. The Serbian government declined, and on 28 July, 1914, the Austro-Hungarians declared war on Serbia. This triggered off a chain of events that saw different countries of the world line up on either side of this theater of conflict, resulting in a war of epic proportions.

It was a war started off by chance, and was the first major global level conflict. The price was heavy, as can be seen in the number of deaths and the fact that the events in the aftermath of the First World War laid the seeds for the rise of Nazism in Germany and the onset of the Second World War.
