World War I: 28th July, 1914
- Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia
The month following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was full of diplomatic manoeuvres between Austria-Hungary, Germany, Russia, France and Britain. This was called the July Crisis.
Austria-Hungary eventually delivered an ultimatum to Serbia, called the July Ultimatum. It had ten points, but Serbia only agreed to eight of them. Britain tried to mediate peace by suggesting a peace conference, but it was to no avail; Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia.
((I chose to make this immediately as the events are really current. The rest of my asks will come in proper order and are queued as I finish them up! Remember, I’m finishing high school, have exams and is moving, so it may take time!))
Congrats Belgium!!! That last bit was driving me crazy!
