I once tried to unravel this war and gave up. This was one of those wars that never should have happened. Old rivalries, bad treaties, and inflated egos combined to cause what was once a war between two countries to become a war between many nations around the world, it was considered to be the first war with airplanes and tanks. But it also included poison gas. Neither side was good nor evil. With WW2 you could point to the evils being carried out by Nazi Germany and imperial Japan and their military expansion as just cause for the world to put a stop to their actions but nothing like that existed in this war. Besides the poison gas and mass death, the worst part about this war was what was done after it was over. Those politicians and diplomats enacted changes that would ultimately set the world on the path to WW2. As I watch the world today I wonder if any of these admirals, generals, diplomats, and government leaders studied world history, especially the two world wars from before they started until well after they ended.
