One hundred years ago today at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month “The Great War” or as we call it today World War One ended. It is often said that this war was the seminal event of the twentieth century and so it was. It could be argued that WWI brought Communism to Russia, Fascism to Italy, Hitler and Nazism to Germany which led to WWII, the Holocaust, the Atomic Bomb and the Cold War among other things.What a legacy. May all those who died as a result of this horrific, tragic senseless war rest in peace. The period recording is by famed Irish tenor John McCormack.
