Even the peace treaty in 1919, which occurred during a deadly worldwide influenza pandemic, brought no relief; another world war, intricately connected to the first, would break out in only two short decades.

The War to End All Wars: Really?
The First World War received many labels since its start in July, 28th, 1914: war against the "huns", war against barbarism, the "War to End All Wars", the war for Democracy in all the world. During about one hour, we can look through the main events of the war, since the shot against Franz Ferdinand, in Sarajevo, the immediate cause of the war, to the great battles of Verdun, The Somme, the 3 Ypres. The stalamete of the famous "western front" is sketched along the audible. The huge resources devoted to make war and transform it in the frist total war in History, involving the families at home, the workers in the industries, the professors in the classrooms and even the priests in the churches. All society was completely absorbed by the war. It was a war that even the riches fought along side the poor, creating a characteristc sprit du corps between the files, the ranks and the officials. After more than five years of fight and dead and mud, the Armistice was accepted by Germany in the 11th Hour of the 11th Month in 1918. But it was not the end of all wars, but only a truce. Hourly History is a excellent introduction for all those who desire to know more about this cataclysmic event of human history.
