World War 1

28 June 1914

So today is the day it all started!
Ref: To-days Ottawa Citizen, 28 June 2014 pg. C3
"On 28 June 1914, Radical Bosnian Serb, Gavrilo Princip, fired the shots that killed
 Austria's Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in Sarajevo." [The spark which led to war]
An accompanying article starts on page C1

Ref; Legion Magazine  July/August 2014 pages 5 and 9 and
        Major feature pages 22 to 30, by Donald E. Graves.
These three articles, especially the feature article, are very important in understanding the events which led to the beginning of the war.
Note. The Legion Magazine should be available at all bookstores and will no doubt
cover the war thru to its end on 11 Nov 1918, and beyond.
