How did one assassination lead to WW1 & the deaths of millions of people? This title centers on the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, a mighty European power, on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, Bosnia. The govít. of Austria-Hungary blamed Serbia for his death & declared war. Although a small country, Serbia had a powerful friend in Russia, so when Serbia was attacked, the Russians entered the conflict. The allies of Austria-Hungary & Russia were drawn in. By the time the U.S. became involved in 1917, the squabble had grown into a terrible world war. Includes: eyewitness accounts & contemporary views on the event; time line summarizing important dates surrounding the event; & glossary. Maps & illus.
