A day of remembrance and assurance

Depending on where you live in the world, you may know November 11 as Veterans Day, Armistice Day, Victory Day, Independence Day, or Remembrance Day. It was on this day in 1918 that the guns on the Western Front in Europe fell silent after more than four years of continual battle. The armistice signed that morning brought to a close the "war to end all wars."

The conflict, now known as World War I, was ignited by the actions of a single assassin and spread until all the powers of Europe and much of the rest of the world were engulfed in its flames.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
