Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia, 28 July 1914

It’s one month to the day after Serbian nationalists killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand and the Duchess of Hohenberg that Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia. The action effectively begins the irreversible steps that lead to the Great War, and the destruction of Western Europe.

After a month, Austria-Hungary had determined that a proper measured response to the assassination of their royals was possible military invasion of Serbia. It’s with unconditional support from Germany—the so-called Blank Check assurance on 5 July—that allows Austria-Hungary to present Serbia with an ultimatum on 23 July 1914: the Empire demands a list of things, but among them that all anti-Austrian propaganda within Serbia to be suppressed, and that Austria-Hungary be given full reign of conducting their own investigation into the Archduke’s murder. Serbia grudgingly accepted the terms, only to have the Austrian government break diplomatic relations.

In an effort to stop the building conflict from bursting, the British Foreign Office lobbied in partnership with French officials in Berlin, Paris and Rome to bring the countries to a table. They fail; the German government wants no part in peace. They advise Vienna to go ahead, and when Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia on 28 July 1914, Russia (the protector of the Balkans) fully mobilizes its military. 

That night, Austrian artillery initiate bombardment of Belgrade.

By 1 August 1914, Germany has declared war on Russia.
By 3 August 1914, Germany has declared war on France.

The Great War has begun.

King Minos’s Labyrinth
"In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth (Greek λαβύρινθος labyrinthos) was an elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at the palace Knossos. 
Its function was to hold Minos’s son, Minotaur, a mythical creature that was half man and half bull. 
Daedalus had so cunningly made the Labyrinth that he could barely escape it after he built it.
Every nine years, Minos made King Aegeus pick seven young boys and seven young girls to be sent to Daedalus's creation, the Labyrinth, to be eaten by the Minotaur. 
After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in the underworld. The Minoan civilization of Crete has been named after him by the archaeologist Arthur Evans.
In colloquial English, labyrinth is generally synonymous with maze, but many contemporary scholars observe a distinction between the two: maze refers to a complex branching (multicursal) puzzle with choices of path and direction; while a single-path (unicursal) labyrinth has only a single, non-branching path, which leads to the center. A labyrinth in this sense has an unambiguous route to the center and back and is not designed to be difficult to navigate.”

 長距離トラック運転手の代名詞、「トラック野郎」。俳優の菅原文太が主演した同名の映画が封切られたのは1975年で、79年までにシリーズ10作品が制作され国民的な人気を博した。高速道路が整備され、陸運が日本の経済発展を下支えした時代。銀幕の中で主人公の星桃次郎は愛車「一番星号」に乗り、日本全国を走り回った。

 この頃、星と一番星号にあこがれて長距離ドライバーになった者は少なくない。実際、90年代にバブルがはじけるまでは、きついながらも高給を得られる人気職種だった。20代に体力にまかせて数千万を稼ぎ、自分のトラックを買う。30代に仲間と運送会社を立ち上げ、さらに稼ぎまくる。派手な装飾の「デコトラ」は成功の証しで「フェラーリが買えるような資金を投じるドライバーも少なくなかった」(自動車部品店、トラックショップジェット千葉店店長の荒川久)。

 「仕事に一度出たら10日前後は家に帰らないのはザラ。その代わり月給は社長より多く、100万円を超えるのが当たり前だった」。こう語る大阪府門真市のドライバーは23歳からハンドルを握り、現在61歳。バブル崩壊後の「失われた20年」は、需要縮小と競争激化で月額給与は減り続け、今は40万円を割り込んだ。「ルール違反の処分も怖いし体力的にもきつくなってきた。年内に引退したい」
