Some other dude tried like 6 months later to get the governments to agree to Ferdinand's master plan, but the war was too far underway.

You can read a lot more about that plan in Franz Ferdinand Lives! (an alternate history) Pretty good stuff. Some satire in it.
Thats not really what WW1 was about though. Kyle knows. UK wanted a scurfuffle. They got a scurfuffle.

Remove the catalyst, you delay it.

You delay it long enough, it doesn't happen.

Alternate universe fact.

World War I would have started without Franz assassination.

The Great War was about Nationalism.

Franz's Uncle, who was the Emperor of Austria-Hungary, hated Franz because he married a common women and even signed a contract saying none of his children could be heirs to the throne of the Empire.

His death and was just in excuse for a just caused in the public eye for Austria-Hungary to give Serbia it's ultimatum and invade.

Nationalist pride between all countries, mainly Austria-Hungary and Serbia was the reason why World War I happened.

Serbia was greedy as fuck, wanting to retake Bosnia from Austria-Hungary after the First and Second Balkan wars.

TWO YEARS KYLE TWO YEARS!!!!!

I agree about the Balkan Wars shit though, but I think it ultimately wouldn't have mattered. Or at worst lead to a way way smaller scale war.

England had a massive Navy, and Kaiser Wilhem was so insane about topping his relatives (Who was King George V and Tsar Nicholas) he started the naval race with England.

This made Germany isolated when England signed the treaty with France who already had an alliance with Russia, surrounding Germany on all sides.

Austria-Hungary allied with Germany because of the Nationalists tensions between Slavic Serbia and Slavic Russia, who was allied with England and France now.

And the telegrams sent between the ambassador of England and Austria-Hungary during the July Crisis states that England wanted nothing to do with the war.

Naw. I think what people always forget about World War I is that it was the last major war where Absolute Monarchies were still controlling the major powers of Europe. None of the combatants needed approval from elected officials for military action.

World War I was inevitable.
