The Great War

Called "The War to End All Wars", it was fought from 1914 to 1918, but eventually and tragically, it turned out to be simply The First World War. Total number of men mobilized to fight: 65 million. Percentage who died: 57%. Number of casualties: 37 million. "If war was once a chivalrous duel, it is now a dastardly slaughter.” —Artur von Bolfras
