The armistice signed in November 1918 signaled the end of World War I. It can be regarded as a turning point in the history of the 20th century. Why did Germany sign the armistice and agree to the harsh terms imposed by the Versailles Treaty? How did these agreements change the social and political structure of Europe? How do we remember those who fought and died in World War I? Armistice 1918 carefully examines these important questions and covers the consequences of World War I on a global scale: the Russian revolution, the rise of fascism, and economic hardship in Britain and Germany.
