The world's most fierce war, the first world war, began on 28 June 1914 with the assassination of the Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary and ended on 11 November 1918. In this great war which lasted nearly four years, 17 million people died. It can also be called the first 'global Mahabharata' of modern history.
There are many opinions on when and how this war began, but the reality is that the Great War began with the assassination of Fronts Ferdinand, the crown prince of the then Austrian-Hungarian Empire. On 28 June 1914, Ferdinand was visiting Bosnia with his wife Sophie, where he was murdered. The assassination dwarfed the Austrian monarchy and he was accused of plotting to kill Serbia. On 28 July 1914, Austria-Hungary Emperor Fröts Yojf declared war on Serbia.
It was the first war, involving most of the countries of Europe. This war was also fought in Russia, America, Middle East and other areas. Mainly, this war was fought by the Allied factions of France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy, Japan and America from 1917 against Central Powers ie Germany, Austria-Hungary and Turkey. The war ended only after the defeat of Central Powers. Even before the ceasefire on 11 November 1918, public dissatisfaction had increased enough that Emperor Wilhelm II had to abdicate the throne and seek refuge in the Netherlands.
In this great war, millions of Indian soldiers fought on behalf of Britain. In the days of the First World War, 60% of the Indian troops sent to the Middle-East fought in Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq) and 10% in Egypt and Palestine. In these countries they died of more diseases than fighting.
