First World War: Part 1 of 3. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. On the 28th of June 1914, a Bosnian-Serb assasinated

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

On the 28th of June 1914, a Bosnian-Serb assasinated the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne in Sarajevo. The story behind that assassination is worthy a compilation on its own, what it sparked is what we are interested.
Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, who were allied to Russia, who declared war on Austria-Hungary, who was allied with Germany, who declared war on Russia, who was allied with France so Germany declared war on them too, invaded France through Belgium prompting The British Empire to declare war on Germany. Japan sent Germany an ultimatum which Germany ignored prompting Japan to also declare was on Germany. Later Bulgaria and Turkey joined on the Austro-Hungarian/German Side (Central powers) and many other countries joined the Serbian/Russian/French/British side (The Entente) such as Romania, Italy, Arab rebels, United States of America, Portugal and many others.
