In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead; short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe! To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high! If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
We watched this in class even though we're only in 5th grade.

So in other words a assassination happened and Europe went to war because one nation wanted revenge and Russia wouldn't mind there own business so everyone just jumped in after that...yep that's pretty much how ww 1 happen (I'm just joking )

no one talks about romania. we had such a powerless and small army yet we entered war in 1916 to get our territories back. Transylvania especially, but our capital was attacked by bulgarians and germans and transylvania was attacked by austro-hungarians, so we had to stop the austro hunagarian army, and also protect our capital which we couldnt do because we got there too late. after all we got our territories back in 1918, but its sad that no one talks about our history. such brave people who didnt have much power or many people but still fought. we never wanted any fights, we just wanted peace and independence, we never attacked anyone we just wanted OUR territories back. our history is so sad and underrated. truly wish it was more appreciated, sadly the country has gone to shit lately and its because of the communism that lasted until 1989. if we wouldnt have had to go through communism, romania wouldve been way different today. still have hope for us tho!

At the end he got a bit mixed up with ww1 and ww2 the Americans joined earlier but there was no push from the Germans that happens in ww2 also he didn’t tell you about the other central powers falling and Germany pulled out because the used all of what they had not because they were getting pushed back they weren’t but I subbed

So it could be argued that the two world wars were technically one massive conflict, since the Germans never officially surrendered in World War One

“Swiftly” the Austro-Hungarian empire declared war on Serbia. No they didn’t! That’s something that can actually give people misinformation about the period.
such eurocentric view. only talks about western europe.
