One Hundred Years Ago Today...

...It began.

The War To End All Wars failed to live up to its name. A better name would be The War That Changed Everything. Though in popular memory it is consigned to the shadows of the the Second World War, which got more press and better movies, in fact we live to this day under the long shadow of four years of cold industrial slaughter. The world of today, for good and for ill, comes from the events that began on this day a century ago.
