The traditional narrative of the outbreak of World War I is that, in a one-off, random event in June 1914, a young Serbian nationalist, Gavrilo Princip, assassinated the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, and this incident set in motion a series of global conflicts that became known as the Great War.
