"The loss of life is just as futile and useless now as then. "
The debate about modern wars goes on, but you insult the dead of WW1 by saying that their deaths were futile and useless.
The Kaiser's Germany was a nasty militaristic regime noted for its cruelty to its subject people in its colonies.
Their armies swept through Europe, massacring civillians not in the fog of war but on orders from the top.
Should they have been allowed to occupy the whole of Europe and most of Russia?
Were those young men wrong to stand against them?
