    While I do want to steer away from events that took place during wartime, this is my number one, because it directly caused the first world war. A foiled terrorist attack by Bosnian Serb nationalists, The Black Hand Gang, results in the non-fatal shooting political of target Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. He’s rushed to hospital, but his chau...

    After two world wars, and perhaps over one hundred million deaths, wealthy men with extraordinary power still thought it necessary to risk the lives of millions more in the most dangerous flexing of muscles the planet had ever seen. Nikita Khrushchev installed nuclear missiles in communist-friendly Cuba, just 103 miles from Florida, at the height o...

    Some might see the founding of an online bookstore just six years before the end of the 20th century as a curious inclusion, but I feel as though we are still yet to see the sheer dominance with which this brand could control lives in the West.

However, the detonation of the atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6th and 9thAugust 1945 respectively, changed the world forever in a moment. It showed man’s potential for evil at a distance. It ended the lives of over ...

    The bloated, creaking Soviet machine was lurching cautiously at the close of the 1980s. Gorbachev, the final leader of the Soviet Union, was trying (and failing) to feed the minds and bodies of a hungry and idle population under a barrage of increasing Western influence. The Berlin Wall, built 28 years earlier, was a symbol of the insularity of the...

    This, like number 3, happened at the close of the 20th century. It flashed with potential, but nobody realized its immense power for recreating and warping societies and global influence. Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989, the world’s first web server and browser. This invention changed the way we communicate, the way we store inf...
