The chain of events that led to the First World War was not obvious at the time; though simmering disputes were reported in the newspapers, it was not yet clear where they were heading. Illustrated with many dramatic photographs, this selection from the Daily Mirror archive charts the build-up to the conflict, year by year, from the beginning of the century, through crises in the Balkans and the Dreadnought arms race to the declaration of war in August 1914.
