KubrickIsMyCopilot: World War 1 was futility incarnate.
Nobody knew what the hell they were fighting for, and when they were done, they *still* didn’t know what they had fought for. Then millions of them went home just to die of Spanish Influenza. People who survived that, suffered the worldwide Depression. People who survived that got the privilege of seeing their children erase their sacrifices and die in yet another global war.
Among the most unfortunate generations in all of history.
falklander1989: Hasburgs knew their empire was dying so they decided rather go fighting then kneel down and die,unfortunately rest of Europe paid terrible price like so many times before thanks to their inbred idiocy.That inbred dynasty caused almost every war in Europe from 16 to 20 century.
