World War I Timeline, Imperial War Museum North
World War I Timeline, Imperial War Museum North
July 2014 sees the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War (World War I). This "timeline" at IWM North reminds us of the scale of the conflict and the horrific suffering of the soldiers involved in the combat. It was the fifth-deadliest conflict in world history. More than nine million combatants were killed: a scale of death impacted by industrial advancements of the age, geographic stalemate and reliance on human wave attacks. Thirteen million civilians also died during the war.
