Ah yes might as well put this down here after Oberon showed it to me the other day:

Rap Battle - WW1:


It pretty much sums up the prelude to war in an...ehm....interesting way but it works

Brilliant! Thanks for the (now bookmarked) link.

I have something prepared for certain 100th anniversary dates, mainly a series of posts I did years ago for another website on the major and minor naval confrontations. I also have a "day-by-day" book I can get info from, but that link looks like it might be a good one to follow.

I say to some extent WWI can share some blame it certainly helped spread the flu much more rapidly than it otherwise would have.
