    Personal Conclusion Of WW1

    World War One was a bloody, dirty, and sad war that all started because Archduke Franz ferdinand and his wife were assinated.Though I do think that if the us hadn't of faught then we would not study it as much and as commonly as we do I still think we should stucy about wars and battles so we can prevent them from happening again.Ikind of think some of the battles could have been prevented if the people knew the violence wasn't goingto solve anything.
