The History of World War I, Part I
The Background, The Combatants, and the Beginning of Madness
This year marks the centenary of the beginning of the "war to end all wars," World War I. The "great war," in fact, caused immeasurable carnage and destroyed so many young men that they became known as the "lost generation." This was the war that used poisonous gas, the zeppelin, machine guns, and, for the first time, tanks and airplanes. We will talk about the history and events which led to World War I, dating back to the end of the Napoleonic era.
