65,000,000 people served from over 50 countries during world war 1...

Some of them volunteered but most of them were drafted and forced to fight...

10,000,000 soldiers were killed. and 20,000,000 soldiers were wounded...

7,000,000 civilians died/murdered during that horrible world wide conflagration...

But now they are all dead and gone and all those people and what they suffered through must never be forgotten...

My great grandmother (my grandmother we called nana) was born in 1902 and died in 1990 (like two months before her great great grand daughter was born my first daughter) and her father and son and husband and uncles and most of her nephews and grand children all fought within various wars and some of them volunteered but most or them were drafted and forced and some of them never came home...

So it looks like Finland (Sweden at the time?) was one of the few countries not to have fought in World War One?

Quote:From the 12th until the start of the 19th century, Finland was a part of Sweden.

It then became an autonomous Grand Duchy within the Russian Empire until the Russian Revolution. This prompted the Finnish Declaration of Independence, which was followed by a civil war where the pro-Bolshevik "Reds" were defeated by the pro-conservative "Whites" with support from the German Empire.

After a brief attempt to establish a monarchy in the country, Finland became a republic.

Finland's experience of World War II involved three separate conflicts: the Winter War (1939–1940) and Continuation War (1941–1944) against the Soviet Union; and the Lapland War (1944–1945) against Nazi Germany.

This is a little difficult and kind of confusing to explain...

Somethings quite sad and rather unusual...

My great great grandmother was pregnant and gave birth to my youngest great aunt during world war one...

My nana (grandmother) was pregnant and gave birth to my mother during world war two...

My aunt was pregnant and gave birth to one of my cousins during the korean war...

My mother was pregnant and gave birth to me and my brother during the vietnam war...

My ex was pregnant and gave birth to our oldest daughter during the first gulf war...

Most likely there were other close relatives of mine who were also pregnant and gave birth during earlier wars that i'm unaware of...

My direct ancestor on my mothers side is/was ethan allen a general in george washingtons army during the revolutionary war and i think he was also the author of the first free though book written in the united states...

Notice the photographs imaged within my opening post showing a terrible sequenced journey down into the abyss of war...

Beginning with cheers and laughter and parades and flowers and celebrations...

Ending with explosions and screams and crucifixes and the grave...

So is communism, socialism, and every other type of government. You can't say that just about democracy.

None of this happened until the Federal Reserve was created in 1913.
