World War I began in July of 1914.  It changed the world.  I could go on about what changed, but you should have learned all that in school.  Oh, you didn’t, that’s right, unfortunately, The Great War, is always overshadowed by it’s younger, more deadly & exciting brother, World War II.  That’s ok, in fact, that’s completely … Continued
