WW1 was a tremendously devastating war. This led to Hitler rising to power, then WW2, then the cold war, then the world problems we have today. However, the morning Gavrilo Princip woke up to kill the archduke of Austria-Hungary, what if he slipped down his steps? What if WW1 never happened?

‘’Truman was to blame for the outbreak of the cold war. How far do you agree with this statement?’’ The Cold War was a period of great tension between the United States of America and the Soviet Union, which were the two ‘superpowers’ that resulted from World War II.
