World War I Activities


World War I, also known as the Great War, was a global conflict that included most of Europe along with parts of Asia, the Middle East, and the United States. As tensions had been brewing throughout Europe in the early parts of the 20th century, the spark that ignited World War I was lit in Bosnia with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This assassination set off a chain of events that was soon irreversible. Over the course of the next four years, World War I would sweep the world with unseen horrors. World War I dragged humanity through a series of conflicts which resulted in over 16 million deaths and an immeasurable amount of destruction. Thanks to new military technologies, people all over the world witnessed this destruction at a catastrophic level. By the time the dust settled and World War I was over, the world would soon witness a build up to an even more catastrophic war in less than 20 years.
