One death that spiralled into millions

It is almost a century since the assassination of archduke of Austria-Hungary that triggered World War I.

    It is almost 100 years since the single event that sparked world War One – the assassination in Sarajevo of the Austro-Hungarian archduke, Franz Ferdinand.

    His death led to four years of horror on the battlefield, with millions dead in the first true "industrial war" that would shape and influence the century to come.
