Sarajevo, Austria-Hungary, a major city in the nation, was being graced by a visit from Franz Ferdinand, the heir-apparent to the nation. However, this visit was hardly ordinary, as this was the beginning of a war that would cause the deaths of eighteen million people. At 10:45 AM, on June 28th, 1914, Gavrilo Princip shot the Austrian Archduke and his wife. This assassination sent repercussions throughout the world. On August 1st, Germany declared war on Russia, officially beginning the war. It is now 1916, and you have been caught in the middle of this war. Citizen or Soldier, Rich or Poor, you must do whatever you can to survive or bring victory to your side of the war. So, without further deliberation, For the Fatherland, God save the King, Vive la France, or whatever.
