Remembrance Sunday tomorrow. Makes me wonder what state the UK would be in if we hadn't bankrupted ourselves twice and sacrificed so many in order to defend others.
I'll give you that the 2WW was an admirable struggle and sacrifice(even then their was an element of self-interest), but WW1 was purely fought out of Imperial interest and a shocking waste of life.
Damien, I feel sure you would also rightly say that without WW1 there would have been no WW2. One shocking waste of life, ironically called the war to end all wars, produced the conditions for another shocking waste of life.

Most definitely DM.It was one war with a twenty year armistice. I hope Europe never descends to the depravity it unleashed on the world again.
