A hundred years ago, the First World War turned Europe into turmoil. Four years later, the Treaty of Versailles brought an end to the horrendous war that extinguished millions of lives. Due to its impact on a wide range of areas, the Great War has since been the object of various research projects. Historians look at how the war influenced people’s daily lives; International Relations specialists ask themselves how to set up a system of global governance that could prevent a future world war; archaeologists and geologists study the objects and physical traces the wreckage left behind; literary scientists study pieces of writing about the war. The list goes on.
