Fighting ceased at the end of World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars and became Veterans Day.
This year Luc Ferier of the Forgotten Heroes 14-19 Foundation will present fascinating untold stories of Muslims, Christians and Jews in the First World War.
