World War 1 - 1914 to 1918

World War 1

World War I, also called First World War or Great War, an international conflict that in 1914–18 involved most of the nations of Europe along with Russia, the United States, the Middle East, and other regions. The war pitted the Central Powers—mainly Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey—against the Allies—mainly France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy, Japan, and, from 1917, the United States.

It ended with the defeat of the Central Powers. The war was virtually unprecedented in the slaughter, carnage, and destruction it caused.

Army battalions were greatly expanded during the war to accommodate for the number of volunteers who were recruited. 

Many territorial soldiers agreed to serve abroad despite the fact that they were only contracted for home defence.
