World War I

World War I was a large-scale military conflict involving many European nations, along with the United States and lots of other nations across the world. The war lasted from 4th August 1914 to 11th November 1918. Over 65 million soldiers were involved in the battles. More than 9 million people were killed and 20 million people were wounded, making it one of the most devastating conflicts ever.

The war ended with the defeat of the German Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire. An international organisation called the League of Nations was formed soon after, in the hopes of preventing another such conflict, but it failed to prevent World War II, a larger and deadlier global war that started in 1939.
