In this look at the origins of WWI, University of Warwick scholars examine the controversial Fischer Thesis, in which Franz Fischer declared that Germany was responsible for starting the war, having put in motion plans for mobilizing its forces in anticipation of conflict. Sarajevo's pivotal role in the war is also discussed, with commentary on the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife by a Bosnian Serb on June 28, 1914. Warwick History: The Outbreak of the First World War is another episode in the series directed at high school and college-level students.
