I love the comic, but really, Serbia is blamed for the war?

My war-history pants say otherwise.

It all depends who's side you're on.  Serbia and Russia had an alliance, then France had one with them.  That caused Germany to declare war of France due to its alliance Austria-Hungry.  To avoid the French MLR Germany went through Belgium, who had an Alliance with England which dragged the entire commonwealth into the war.  I'm not sure why the Ottomans and Bulgaria joined the Central powers and I assume Romania was with Russia at this time.  America joined in due to the German U-boats attack it's ships.  Finally, Italy joied in to get territory but got it's ass kicked.

The Ottomans had a treaty with Germany similar to France and Russia. Romania wanted to take Transylvania, a romanian majority land, from Austro-Hungaria. As for Bulgaria, hell if i know

Turns out Bulgaria lost some territory after the 2nd Balkens war to majority of countries that joined the allies so they figured the'd get it back for joining the central powers.

Oooh! Brilliant! My favourite bit is the transition from soft hats to steel helmets. Very nicely done! And the cartoons expressions are fantastic.

Better than any history textbook I've ever read. Will you be doing other wars besides the World Wars?

Absolutely great! I'll show it to my colleagues in class (we're expanded history class).

One little thing - Russia did not become the USSR until the thirties or something. It was Soviet Russia for the few years after the WWI. :)
