La Première Guerre Mondiale

Manifesto_1915
Le 28 juin 1914 l'assassinat à Sarajevo de l'archiduc François-Ferdinand d'Autriche-Este, héritier du trône d'Autriche-Hongrie, a donné le départ - et le prétexte - à un grand conflit qui a impliqué la plupart des grandes puissances mondiales.
Le conflit a commencé le 1 aout 1914 pour finir plus de quatre ans plus tard, le 11 Novembre 1918.
Le conflit impliquant les grandes puissances de l'époque, divisée en deux blocs opposés; Puissances centrales (Allemagne, Autriche-Hongrie, l'Empire ottoman) et la Bulgarie, contre les puissances alliées représentés principalement par la France, Royaume-Uni, l'Empire russe et l'Italie (le dernier en 1915).
Plus de 70 millions d'hommes ont été mobilisés dans le monde entier (60 millions rien qu'en Europe), dans ce qui est rapidement devenu le plus grand conflit jusque-là combattu, qui a causé plus de 9 millions de victimes parmi les soldats et environ 7 millions victimes civiles dues non seulement aux effets directs des opérations de guerre, mais aussi à la famine et les maladies concomitantes.
Dans cette section vous trouverez livres, gravures, photos et journaux, écrits aussi par les soldats des toutes pays.
