1914: 100 years of European peace, ancient empires ruled, unbridled progress, industrial expansion – and all shattered by war on an industrial scale. World War I changed the world forever. We will look at the rivalries among the great powers, grand alliances and the events leading up to the outbreak of the Great War. From an assassination of the Austrian heir, Europe careened toward catastrophe. The war that would be “over by Christmas” killed 20 million people and set the stage for the even more cataclysmic World War II.
