Meeting of November 20, 2018

Dana Lombardy on “Commemorating the End of World War One, 1918-2018”

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended the Great War, World War One, the “War to End Wars” as science-fiction writer H.G. Wells wrote in 1914. Obviously, it did not end wars and, in fact, was responsible for starting several more, including the War on Terrorism that plaques us today. Why? What happened that was so different, so cataclysmic to cause problems 100 years later? Dana Lombardy, Publisher and Senior Editor for World War One Illustrated magazine will explain through a PowerPoint presentation why World War One is still important today.
