Major wars have a tendency to define, or redefine history. But Historian and author Andrew Roberts argues that there was no
more definitive than World War One. In the following Prager University video, Roberts explains, correctly in my opinion, that World War I forever changed the landscape around the world. It had as much of a negative impact as did the American Revolution had a positive – maybe more.
And it all began with the assassination of one man in 1914 – Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, presumptive heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife Sophie. They were murdered by a Serbian nationalist.
