28 July 1914 – WORLD AT WAR – 100th anniversay of WWI

One hundred years ago, World War I began. The world hasn’t been the same since.

Today a friend sent a pic from Business Insider which I now share.

The other photos give a sense of what trench warfare was like.

I may have to take another trip to Kansas City soon in order to visit again the World War I Memorial and Museum.  I might have to get some BBQ and then, perhaps, do an exorcism at the offices of the Fishwrap.

    Yes, the Great European War 1914- 1945 in which Christian nation fought Christian nation, Catholic fought Catholic and at the end, Islam steadily re-surged while Secularists were busy suppressing weakened Christianity, and Catholicism was too busy with its latest Relativist Reformation to do what Sobiesky, and Don John, and La Valette, had done just a short time before to throw back the real enemy.

    If anyone is interested, the BBC produced a wonderful miniseries called “37 Days” about the events that happened from the time of the Archduke’s assassination until war was declared. You can find it online by searching for 37 Days BBC. I would highly recommend it to any history buff.

    Robbie, thanks for that tip! It will be released in the USA in mid-September on dvd.

    I did some family research last year and found a great uncle who died in WW1.
    March 1915.
    Ive been fascinated with WW1 ever since.

    I am fascinated as well by “The Great War” as my existence depended on it. My grandmother was a war bride and she and my grandfather settled in Canada after the war. Funnily enough my wife’s existence is due to WWII as her grandmother was a war bride of an American serviceman.
