The Great War Project – The World War, also called “The Great War,” devastated much of Europe, killed more than 10 million people, ended empires, gave birth to new nations, sparked conflicts from France to Persia, from Russia to the Pacific islands, and created the conditions leading to World War II a generation later
Yet it settled nothing, and many of the conflicts from Europe to the Middle East and beyond still simmer to this day.
