The First World War (WWI) was the biggest war that the world had ever seen, at least until the beginning of the 20th century, due to the large number of people and countries embroiled in the conflict, the extent of the territories involved, and the wide usage of technology for the first time. The war, which started in 1915 with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by a Serbian nationalist, lasted for 4 years and ended in 1919 with the defeat of the Central Powers that consisted of Austria-Hungary, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire. WWI’s social, economic and cultural influences continue to have consequences today. These upshots are notably visible in the Middle East, arguably one of the regions that suffered the most from the war.
