On Sunday, November 11, 2018, (“the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month”), exactly one hundred years will have passed since the Armistice, signalling the end of World War I, aka “The Great War”. Armistice Day, known as Veteran’s Day in the United States, is a reminder of a bloody and brutal war which was supposed to end all wars, but which actually helped laid out a blueprint for future history and conflicts in the 20th and 21st Centuries. As we pause to remember, one hundred years later, please use our guide for resources related to the First World War.
