America the Young Lion

Last week was the anniversary of the start of WWI.  It was a war that seemed to unexpectedly start and with all of the military alliances of the central powers and the triple entente it quickly spread from the Balkans.  Welcome to the Bible in News, this is John Billington with you this week.

It was July 28th, 1914 when Austria- Hungary declared war on Serbia, which in the end dragged in Germany, Russia, France and Great Britian and importantly the Ottoman Empire.  When America finally joined it was dubbed the war to end all wars.  When the war was over the map had completely changed.  The most important development that came out of the war was the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Balfour Declaration.
