World War I: The War to End All Wars

Date(s): 2/15/2014, 3/15/2014, 4/19/2014, 5/17/2014, 6/21/2014, 7/19/2014, 8/16/2014, 9/20/2014, 10/18/2014, 11/15/2014, 12/20/2014

February 15, 2014 - December 31, 2014

Center for History - 808 W. Washington South Bend, IN 46601
It was 100 years ago in 1914 that World War I began with the murder of Archduke Ferdinand. Nation after nation lined up to fight on either the side of the Entente, led by France, or the Central Powers, led by Imperial Germany. These alliances had been building for over 20 years, with each side nursing old wounds and ready for revenge against past insults. All anticipated the battles would be over by Christmas, thinking new and improved technology would provide a definitive edge. Little did they conceive of a war that would last until 1918 and encompass the entire globe. Nor did they anticipate that it would cost the lives of 10 million soldiers, severely impair another 20 million and create 10 million refugees. In the summer of 1914, the war looked like a chance to prove one’s manhood rather than--as it became--a descent into hell.
