The chain of events that led to the outbreak of the First World War – “the war to end all wars” – began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austrian Hungarian Empire, at the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo on June 28 1914. The root causes of the war go much further back in the history of Europe. The purpose of the course is to examine these long term causes and to provide the events that precipitated the war in a more considered and comprehensible framework.
