Fact of the Day: Origin of the Great War

While tensions were rough between nations, many cite the starting point of World War I when a young man named Gavrilo Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This led Austria-Hungary to invade Serbia which in turn caused the conflicts that evolved into World War I.

  6. World War I-A colossal, murderous cock-up thrust upon the world by morons with an inflated sense of hubris.
    Tragic that there are many people who still think slaughtering each other is a good thing to do.

  8. One thing led to another, Adam. I hope you will check out some vintage films too. Think of them as time travel as you observe earlier periods.
