The beginning of World War 1. The assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the key event that led to World War 1. Because of this Austria declared war in Siberia. Because of this Germany (Austria’s ally) declared war on Russia (Siberia’s ally). Then Germany declared war on France (Germany’s ally). The United States declared that they would remain neutral, but that didn’t work out. Everyone thought that this would be a short war, but they were wrong. The war lasted from August 1914 to November 1918.
