When Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated by Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip on June 28, 1914, it set off a chain of events that became one of the largest and longest wars mankind had ever seen, known as World War I. This year represents the centennial of the start of this war and York University's Department of History is releasing an eight-part video series commemorating the anniversary, entitled The War to End All Wars: A Look Back at World War I. Comprised of six English-language and two French-language episodes, the series showcases 15 of York's History professors discussing various events of the war. "The series of videos in English and French, offers an opportunity to better understand the impact that the First World War had on Canadians and the world," said Marcel Martel, Chair of the Department of History.
