Directions: In the summer of 1914 peaceful relations in Europe broke down, and erupted in devastating war in the span of a month. The July Crisis, as it is known, ended 100 years of general peace, and initiated the most devastating war the world had seen to that point. Your task is to analyze the sources below and tell the story of the July Crisis, explaining the story of how World War 1 began.
Your story should include the following “characters”: Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia, and Serbia. Be as creative as you’d like in telling this story.
Try to be as detailed as possible.
Narrate your “story” in writing (no longer than one page).
Whichever group is closest to the actual “July Crisis” will be rewarded with extra credit on the next test.
*Includes 7 non-textual primary and secondary sources.
