      I enjoyed this hub and I look forward to reading a few of the articles you've linked for us. So many men went to war so naively. All of our parents' parents were naïve. Who could know the horrors until the war began to unfold. Voted up. Sharing.

      Love the pop quiz! In a strange way, WW1 brought my husband and I together. He was very impressed that I not only knew what city Archduke Ferdinand was in when he got shot, but that I had stood on that street corner when visiting Sarajevo!
