In HistoryEdit

World War I was a direct result of the assasination of the Austrian Archduke by Serbian nationalists, and the major powers joined in due to their alliances with Austria-Hungary or Serbia. The major powers were the Allies (United Kingdom, France, and Russia) against the Central Powers (Germany and Austria-Hungary). Due to technological advancements in weaponry, trench warfare became the major military tactic. The war ended with the Allies winning, and several new nations were formed.
