    World War I, 1914-1918

    During the First World War, 10 million people were killed, 19 million were wounded and 3.5 million were left permanently disabled.

    World War I (1914-1918) was the first global conflict in history, involving 38 countries with a combined population of over 1.5 billion – three quarters of the world’s population at that time. The war lasted four years, three months and ten days, and led to collapse of four empires – Russian, German, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman.
