The First World War, or as some called it, the Great War, was truely a global conflict with battlefields girdling the globe form Europe to the Pacific, and from Africa to the North Atlantic. Ignited by a regional issue, the flames fanned by the powerful forces of nationalism, and the explosion born of a new type of war - war by timetable. The combatants all believed that the could win a quick decisive victory which would lead to the next level of global domination, but were sucked into a drawn out, bloody struggle with no victory, just a time out for twenty years and than a resumption of the contest. This was the first modern war with machines and technology playing a major role in the battles, the war and the outcome.
