World War I, also known as the Great War, began in 1914 after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. His murder catapulted into a war across Europe that lasted until 1918. On 11 November 1918, the guns fell silent and the war came to an end, but its impact was felt for many, many years after. World War One changed the world in ways that nobody could have imagined. New weapons and technologies were developed and used that led to more destruction than any war had seen in the past.
