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.
To our veterans
and those in our military….
Good night and God bless!
Until next time…
Namaste my friends!
