100 years ago the German navy was in a state of mutiny. The Central Powers begun to collapse with Bulgaria signing an armistice on September 29 followed by the Ottoman Empire on October 30th & Austria-Hungry on November 3rd. This left Germany all alone. The mutiny spread to the general population and the political collapse of the German Empire. However the fighting on the western front continued until the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month and more lives were lost for no reason.  We do not know the exact number of deaths caused by the war. Wikipedia says about 40 million. Sadly The War to End All Wars only set the stage for a even deadlier conflict 20 years later. Much of the today's unrest in the Middle East is directly related to how Britain & France carved up the Ottoman Empire.

Nothing to do with politics. Simple verifiable historical fact. 

Though this probably belongs in OT

Politics in the forums is toxic. Mods, please shut this down.

We are discussing 100 year-old history, not politics.

Yes, I forgot to include Sykes-Picot.
