  • World War 2 Germany Blame France
    601 words
    World War I has often been referred to as the "Great War." This is a rather deceiving statement being that over 65 million men fought, and over 37 million men died in a war that lasted 4 years. World War I was, also, referred to as the "War to end all Wars." Yet, 20 years later that statement would no longer be true as WWII erupted in 1939.
