World War 1 was also known as the First World War, The Great War and the War to End All Wars. Lasting from 1914 to 1918.

World War 1 became infamous for trench warfare, where troops were confined to trenches because of tight defenses. This was especially true of the Western Front. More than 9 million died on the battlefield, and nearly that many more on the home fronts because of food shortages, genocide, and ground combat.

The term used for American forces was The American Expeditionary Forces

The term used for British forces was British Expeditionary Forces and Territorial Forces

This site has a sample of WW1 songs. http://www.archive.org/details/SongsOfWorldWarI  The first one "Over There" is probably the one most people have heard. Also my favorite.

This is a toy WW1 tank my dad had when he was a child in the 1920's. From everything I've found it's a Mark 1 tank.
