1918 – World War I ends: Germany signs an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside of Compiègne in France. The war officially stops at 11:00 (The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month). The French keep the railcar as a memento.
Unfortunately, the way those smug " gentlemen " ended the war of 1914-1918 directly led to the European part of the war of 1939-1945.ReplyDelete
