Why did all these nations have alliances like this? What caused Austria to declare war on Serbia?

May 3rd, 2015

Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary. Hoping to ease tensions with the Balkan nations, he arranged to tour Bosnia-Herzegovina with his wife, Sophie. On June 28, 1914, an assassin killed Franz Ferdinand and Sophie in Sarajevo. The murderer, a young Bosnian Serb named Gavrilo Princip, had links to a Serbian terrorist group called the Black Hand.

The assassination of Franz Ferdinand gave Austria-Hungary a reason to attack Serbia, its long-time enemy in the Balkans. Backed by Germany’s promise of support, Austria-Hungary sent a list of demands to Serbia. Serbia accepted most of the demands and offered to settle the rest through an international conference. Austria-Hungary rejected the offer and declared war on Serbia on July 28.

Te assassination resulted into the declaration of war.
