Description

Early cinema newsreel from 1914 captures the outbreak of World War One in Europe. From the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in June 1914 to Britain’s declaration of war on Germany in August of that year, the Telegraph looks at the momentous events which defined the The Great War. An intricate web of alliances began to crumble as nationalist and imperialist rhetoric reached fever-pitch well before 1914. The Great Powers responded by mobilising their entire populations for a period of total war.
