The June 28, 1914, assassination of Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, by Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip set off a chain of events that ended in the outbreak of World War I.
A fierce militarist, Wilhelm II encouraged aggressive Austro-Hungarian diplomatic policies following the assasination of Franz Ferdinand. The Kaiser was nominally in charge of the German army, but the real power lay with his generals. As World War I drew to a close, he was forced to abdicate in 1918
A graduate of West Point and a veteran of the Battle of San Juan Hill, “Black Jack” Pershing was named commander of the American Expeditionary Force when the United States entered World War I in April 1917.
George V assumed the British throne in May 1910, following the death of his father, King Edward VII. He made repeated visits to the front throughout World War I, earning him the deep respect of his subjects.
When Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, Russia’s alliance with its Balkan neighbor forced it to enter the war against the Central Powers. The tsar assumed control of the Russian army, with disastrous results. In 1917, he was forced to abdicate, and he and his family were executed in 1918.
After the Bolsheviks seized power during the Russian Revolution of 1917, Lenin negotiated the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. The treaty ended Russia’s involvement in World War I, but on humiliating terms: Russia lost territory and nearly one-quarter of its population to the Central Powers.
In 1918, President Wilson outlined his vision for a post-war world. He aimed to reduce arms, provide for self-determination and create an association of nations to prevent future wars. His ideas faced opposition at home and abroad and the Treaty of Versailles was never ratified by the United States
