Big Question
Although all wars are by definition violent and bloody,World War I, the “Great War” was particularly so. What was it about this conflict that caused so much death and destruction?
People and countries were not prepared for that kind of war. Weapons and tactics destroyed many things and even countries, and the more countries and people got involved the more disastrous the war became. This war came up to some agreements but they couldn't last forever since by time more countries lost their allies and many countries were not satisfied.
