Lightning Challenge #37 (Complete)

War is Hell

Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori
— Wilfred Owens, 1918 Dolce et decorum est.
  It is often said that a war does not start with bullet, but with words and so on this, The November of 2018, I say we look back in time. On this day, in 1918, a war which had started with over 65 million strong, ended with a signature in a passenger car in France. World War I, a war of experimentation, necessity, and bloodshed, came to a close on 11 AM, November 11, 1918. To honor this, I ask the community to create an entry based around a great war in their world.
