     Many of the European powerhouse countries were building their armies and resources since the 19th century, but it was the assassination of Archdule Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the heir to the country’s throne, by Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian Serbian student on June 28, 1914. This was followed by a month of failed diplomatic talks between Austria-Hungary, Germany, Russia, France, and Britain. Austria-Hungary gave Serbia a list of 10 demands that Serbia would have to accept or else be attacked. Serbia agreed to eight of the demands, but since 2 of the demands were not met, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia on July 28, 1914. Within a matter of weeks, Britain, Russia, France, Germany, and Austria-Hungary entered a war which is now known as World War I, or The Great War.
