 Poppy Fields


One hundred years ago today, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the guns of the Great War fell silent. This conflict raged over four years resulting in the deaths of sixteen million people, seven million of which were civilians. While predominantly a European war, combat spread to the four corners of the earth. The horrors of trench warfare in the muddied, desolate fields of France and Belgium were matched only by the barbarity of chemical weapons. When the bloodshed ended, one of the greatest natural disasters known to mankind followed. The Spanish Flu, unfortunately spread by returning soldiers, infected an estimated 500 million people and killed between 50 and 100 million, approximately 2-3% of the world's population. As populism and the Far Right now grow in strength across the globe, it is timely to remember our shared history and reflect on those who fought and died for a moral, fair and free life for those of their time, and their descendants a century later.
