The explosive that was World War One had been long in the stockpiling; the spark was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian-Hungarian throne, in sarajevo on 28th June 1914 by Gabrel Princip of the Black Hand - a Serbian Nationalist secret society involved in terrorist activities.

This set in motion a series of events that heightened tensions between Austria and Sarajevo, pulled other European countries into conflict, and culminated in the world's first global war.
