Franz Ferdinand Assassinated!
The heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Archduke Franz Ferdinand has been assassinated in Sarajevo, Bosnia!
This evil man has been removed from our world by a heroic Bosnian, whose identity so far remains unknown. Ferdinand was killed on a trip to Bosnia, whilst attempting to quash the dreams of Bosnian independence, from the tyrannical Austro – Hungarians.
This evil empire has bullied many countries in ‘The Balkans’ region in the past, such as Serbia and Montenegro, who have already gained their independence.
Ferdinand was making a public appearance, with his wife and himself being driven down the street in an open top car. As they waved to the crowd, a brave, young man threw a grenade towards Ferdinand’s car. The
grenade however, bounced off that car and hit the one behind. The explosion injured the driver who was rushed to hospital. Ferdinand, obviously sensing the hostility of the majority of the Bosnian public, fled to the Town Hall. There, he and his wife decided to visit the injured driver in hospital, in an attempt to gain public support. This gave the assassins another chance to strike. The couple drove to the hospital, but on the way the driver took a wrong turn. As the car slowly reversed, an unknown man, sitting outside a café spotted the car and its occupants. He stood up, strode up to the car, pulled out a silenced pistol and fired two shots into the car. Both the Archduke and his wife were killed. The young
assassin did not have enough time to escape and was quickly arrested by police officers.
Both he and the grenade assassin are being transported to Vienna to await trial.
Fellow Russians, we should not see these men as criminals, but as Martyrs, great men fighting for a true and just cause. The Austro-Hungarians have for many years bullied countries like Bosnia and Serbia; we should stand up for them, fight and help our fellow man. The Bosnian people have longed to join their neighbours, in being separate from the Austria - Hungarians, and this recent hostility may add fuel to an already blazing fire.

The Causes And Effects Of World War IThe Causes And Effects Of World War I World War I was a military conflict from 1914 to 1918. It began as a local European war between Austria - Hungary and Serbia on July 28, 1914. It was transformed into a general European struggle by declaration of war against Russia on August 1, 1914 and eventually became a global war involving 32 nations. Twenty - eight of these nations, known as the Allies and the Associated Powers, and including Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, and the United States,
The Causes of World War IThe Causes of World War I The first world war had many causes, the historians probably have not yet discovered and discussed all of them so there might be more causes than what we know now. In this essay I would discuss the main causes of the war—the ones that were discussed in the textbook. In the time before the war’s outbreak (before 1914—in the beginning of the century) the world was separated into big empires that had colonies around the world (European countries ruled most of Africa). Ther
Causes of the First World WarCauses of the First World War In the summer of 1914 a massive war was started between the great powers. In this essay I will investigate the causes of World War 1 and try to work out which country or countries were to blame for starting it. In the 1800\'s, Britain was by far the leading nation. It had an enormous world-wide empire and powerful navy to protect the large amount of land overseas that it owned. Britain manufactured many different goods, which were exported to other countries, includ
The causes of WW1The causes of WW1 Britain and Germany were competing to have the most powerful navy in the world. This caused tension in Europe. The Scramble for Africa (when European countries had tried to get as many colonies as they could) had led to many small conflicts around the world. This meant that some of the major European powers were not very friendly towards each other. The French were very distrustful of the Germans as a result of the war in 1870-1871 that the Germans had won. The alliance systems
Why do you think there was no general European warWhy do you think there was no general European war between 1815 and 1914? In order to understand why there wasn’t a general European war during the time period mentioned it is necessary to look at the relationship between the major powers at the time in both a foreign and domestic context. It is also important to understand why these nations were so concerned in preventing another Napoleon from dominating the European scene once more. In 1815 the five main powers in Europe were Austria, France,
Origins of World War IOrigins of World War I When dealing with a subject as touchy as choosing the cause of the First World War, you can not “point a finger” at an individual country. My argument is that each European Country involved in the war was at fault. I completely agree with Sidney B. Fay in chapter II of An Age of Conflict about each country being at fault. “… a European War broke out. Why? Because in each country political and military leaders did certain things which led to mobilization and declaration of

Austria-HungaryAustria-Hungary In defense of my client, Austria-Hungary, it must be acknowledged that she has been victimized by her minorities in her empire as well as neighboring terrorists, throughout the entire pre, post, and World War I periods.
