108 years ago the world was plunged into a pit of darkness, from which it is yet to emerge. The war against Ukraine is just one of the results.
August 191428 June. Archduke Franz Ferdinand assassinated.
28 July. Austria -Hungary declares war on Serbia.
31 July. Russia mobilises.
1 August. Germany and France mobilise.
3 August. Germany declares war on France and Russia.
4 August. Germany invades Belgium.
Britain declares war on Germany.
11 November 1918. 22 million dead
This is the world they have made,
and this world shall unmake them;
for from now on they cannot climb
back up the slope that the world
they have made is rolling down on.
