A new resource to help teach the July Crisis
Following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on 28th June 1914, Europe entered a period of a few weeks when decisions were made that resulted in most of Europe being at war by the start of August. It is easy to look back and judge with hindsight, but what was it like to be making decisions during that period without a knowledge of what was to come? Recent historical work by people such as Christopher Clark and Margaret Macmillan has focused upon the importance of the so-called July Crisis of 1914 in the outbreak of a European conflict. Old models of a stoked fire of a tense Europe just needing the match of the assassination to cause a war don’t fit this idea that the leaders in July 1914 had more agency than was thought. Here is a decision making activity to help students to understand that choices were made during this period that may have defined the course of the 20th century.
