July 28th 1914: Austria-Hungary Declares War on Serbia

The front page of The Washington Times above reports that following the unsatisfactory Serbian response to Austria’s July Ultimatum the Austro-Hungarian Empire have declared war on Serbia.  

The Ultimatum had been drafted to be unacceptable and while Serbia had agreed to all but one of the ten demands Austria took the opportunity to declare war on the small Balkan state on its southern border.   With Germany and Austro-Hungary declining to take part in suggested mediation talks. The declaration of war would suck Russia, Serbia’s ally, into the conflict forcing them to mobilise their forces.  

The resulting mobilisations snowballed Europe into a total war the likes of which it had never seen.  Following Germany’s declaration of war on Russia war between the rest of Europe’s major powers was inevitable.

World War I: 28th July, 1914 - Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia
The month following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was full of diplomatic manoeuvres between Austria-Hungary, Germany, Russia, France and Britain. This was called the July Crisis.
Austria-Hungary eventually delivered an ultimatum to Serbia, called the July Ultimatum. It had ten points, but Serbia only agreed to eight of them. Britain tried to mediate peace by suggesting a peace conference, but it was to no avail; Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia.
