It was supposed to be the war to end all wars.
That was what they called it – The Great War, which ravaged Europe from July 1914 to November 1918. More than 16 million people were killed and more than 20 million wounded in a bloody event that toppled four imperial regimes and redrew the maps of Europe.
It was on Nov. 11, 1918, that the armistice ending the war was signed. At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, one of the most brutal chapters in human history closed.
