975,000 Casualties Occurred in One Battle During World War 1

Instead of quotes this week, I’m highlighting facts about WWI, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the end of the war on November 11, 1918. I know I usually do inspiring quotes, but I feel it is important to remember history. 

According to interestingfacts.com, the style of warfare at the time was known as “trench warfare” and was extremely deadly. The resulting battles were very long.

The battle at Verdun, a battle between the French and German forces, began in February 1916 and lasted 10 months, until December 1916, resulting in approximately 975,000 casualties.

This link will take you to a video by the History Channel

on the Battle of Verdun.

To our veterans

and those in our military….

About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
