WW1 represented the first global war incorporating industrial applications to the weapons of war. Ironically, first skirmish between French and German soldiers on 8/4 1914 utilized sword vs lance harking back to medieval times.Within mere months the armaments rolled out escalated to a ghastly threshold with barbed wire and massive artillery pieces, poison gas (4 /22 1915) and zeppelins for aerial bombing (5 /31 1915). Point is these new weapons represented mass destruction on a scale never before seen and millions died because of it. Now we read this and wonder how many will die in the NEXT war?
