On the twenty – eighth of July, the First World War started. A couple of days before Archduke Franz Ferdinand had been shot by a Serbian man. It was sad to say that he died and that’s when World War I broke out. Serbia was one of the first countries to fight and because they joined so did Russia, then France and Britain. Germany was the other country that joined first in WWI. Many people died but quite a lot survived. The people that went into the war were brave and they did it for us! And this is why we remember WWI today.
