Remembrance Day, On Time

At 11:00 on November 11, 1918, the armistice that ended the Great War took effect, thus bringing to a close the opening rounds of the charnel house conflicts that would define the 20th Century. Possibly the most senseless war of the lot - sparked by assassination, launched by egotism, enabled by blindness, and prolonged, gruelingly, by incompetence and an inability to adjust theory to match reality on the ground - 20 million people died, and 20 million more were wounded, many permanently.
