It's the 100th anniversary of WW1! The Great War. The War of Nations. The War to End All Wars. If only that were true. What a war it was! It was a war unlike any other fought in the long history of Europe. New technology - tanks, flamethrowers, fighter jets, poison gas, and more. And it was unprecedented in scope - over 65 million troops would be mobilized over the course of the four years. Over 65 million men sent to fight. Think about that number. We'll talk about a lot of numbers today as we break down what led to WW1, what happened during WW1, how and when it ended and its aftermath, today, on a thank you to the troops edition, happy Veteran's Day edition, of Timesuck.
