Today 100 years ago on November 11, 1918 World War 1 had ended. Since July 28, 1914 the Allied and Central Powers had fought against each other in deadly conflicts mostly trench warfare with casualties mounting. By 1918 the Allies grew stronger with the United States joining and helped defeat Germany who could no longer hold off and after 4 years of war, the Allies had won the war with Germany's surrender. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the War to End all Wars had concluded. World War 1 was one of the deadliest conflicts in human history with 40 million casualties both military and civilian. The war forever changed the world for both good and bad with empires collapsing, new nations forming, and introducing new war technologies including tanks, poison gas, machine guns, submarines, flamethrowers, and airplanes. In 1919 the Allies created the Treaty of Versailles blaming Germany for the war and had to pay billions in war reparations, lose territory of the former empire, and decrease the size of their military. Many thought that there would be no more Wars 100 years has passed since this great conflict and it's important that we remember those who fought because some people don't know history and are bound to repeat it. As a military history buff I can only imagine what it was like to be a 23 year old in the trenches and facing machine guns and poison gas in conflicts like Passchendaele, Verdun, Somme, Gallipoli, the Argonne Forest, and Belleau Wood. May these people never be forgotten and their legacy continue. #WorldWar1 #history #ArmisticeDay #1918 #100thanniversary #LostGeneration #rememberthem #neverforget #Passchendaele #Gallipoli #BelleauWood #ArgonneForest #Verdun #Somme #Kaiserschlacht #USA #Britain #ANZAC #Russia #France #GermanEmpire #OttomanEmpire #AustroHungarianEmpire #trenchwarfare #newtechnology

WW1⠀
Halberstadt CL.II “Brünhilde⠀
Here one can see the gunner receiving the 22-pound Wurfgranaten 15 fragmentation bombs.⠀
The gunner of the aircraft, operating a ring-mounted MG14, would have also had several small Wurfgranaten 15 trench mortar bombs at the ready if needed.⠀

Close air support played a significant role in the initial successes of the German armies at the Somme in 1918. Though the concept itself had been introduced by the British at Passchendaele the previous summer, the Germans capitalized on that concept - and rolled with it. In fact Germany was the first country to design and produce an aircraft solely for the ground attack role, and that model came in the form of the Halberstadt CL.II.⠀

(read the caption)
Sending their young ones into war.
Separating them away from their dearest ones.
Leaving those ones who were left away from the distressing field of bloodshed in promise of returning.
Will their son, brother, perhaps lover or husband fulfill their promise?
Yes they will,
Alive,
Or their names written in letter from death itself.

The 60,000 men of the Portuguese Expeditionary Corps had been strung out across a sector of the Western Front 7 miles (11km) long, divided up into four sub-brigade sectors. ⠀

Having spent nearly an entire year (11 months total) in the trenches, the Portuguese Expeditionary Corps by the spring of 1918 was a tired and worn out shadow of its former self. Up to this point the Portuguese had sustained heavy casualties on the Western Front, and since being deployed to France in May 1917, had withstood increasingly intensive German attacks. Units began to report mutinies within the ranks beginning in April 1918, at a time when such indiscipline was the last thing any Allied unit needed. Thus the decision was made to pull the PEC off the line completely, effective immediately, and replace it with British units. This process began on April 6th, with the first of the two Portuguese divisions withdrawing. The second division (coincidentally the 2nd Division) was scheduled for April 9th, but the Germans launched Operation Georgette that morning.⠀

Hit hard by eight German divisions the morning of April 9, 1918, the 2nd Division made a desperate defense but was quickly enveloped and overran. The Battle of the Lys was an absolute disaster for the Portuguese. They lost over 7,000 men (surprisingly the vast majority of these had been captured) and the entire division had nearly been wiped out completely, equating for 10% of all of the PEC’s casualties up to that point, and ⅓ of its forces on the front lines.⠀

The Kaiserschlacht: A German Mark III male Beutepanzer (Captured tank) shells an enemy trench as an aircraft flies overhead during the German Spring Offensive, 1918. The Kaiserschlacht (The Kaiser’s battle) was the last major Offensive made by the Germans on the Western Front. Following an artillery bombardment, which fired 1,100,000 shells in just 5 hours, making it the largest artillery bombardment of the entire war, German divisions began their assault. The objective of the offensive was to was to defeat the Allies before the overwhelming human and matériel resources of the United States could be fully deployed. They also had the temporary advantage in numbers afforded by the nearly 50 divisions which had been freed by Russia’s defeat in the war. By July, the Offensive had yielded large territorial gains for the Germans, as well as control over crucial railroads and coastline, however the Germans failed to achieve victory and many of their divisions had been depleted.🔷Colorized by me🔷#WorldWarOne #GreatWar #WW1 #WarToEndAllWars #Kaiserschlacht #SpringOffensive #WesternFront #Colorizations #Tanks #ww1tank
