[edit] Information

At 11 am on November 11, 1918, World War I ended. Victory had been assured and final territory already agreed upon. So why did more soldiers die on that day than on D-Day? The answer is the most shocking story of WWI. Based on best-selling historian and biographer Joseph Persico's book 11th Month, 11th Day, 11th Hour: Armistice Day, 1918, we reveal how Allied leaders found outrageous excuses to send 13,000 men to their deaths against a defeated enemy. Some leaders desired promotion, others craved retribution, while one commander chose to capture a town that day solely to bathe! Despite the human toll, nothing was gained - territories taken that day were eventually returned to Germany. The senseless 11th hour slaughter is more than a historical curiosity; it captures the whole of WWI in a microcosm - pointless carnage for no positive purpose.
