The First World War
The First World War brought the world a new, industrialized way of war with the airplane, machine gun, rapid-fire artillery, poison gas, tanks and many other new weapons. With them came new ways of looking at warfare, a destructive mindset that made for even bloodier conflict than those of past centuries.
