The Black Hand that Started WWI
14 million people died in the First World War. It was (unwillingly) triggered by one act of the Black Hand organization in a marginal area of Europe. Europe was tightly linked by mutual defense treaties and the movement of one caused the mobilization of all. The war followed fifty years of peace and prosperity. The Black Hand's Constitution called for the unification of Serb lands, an ideal that is still standing and unrealized.
