Every day, for the next few years, we will ask ourselves the question:

#FWW100 - What happened 100 years ago?

 → Why 'FWW'? Well, the First World War (FWW) was a period of destruction and innovation. It sowed the seeds of our current, modern day culture.
 → Why '100'? The First World War took place exactly 100 years ago.
 → Why is it important? There are important lessons we need to learn. All across the world, we need to remember our shared history...

  • Join us in building a better understanding of the people involved in this critical period of world history.
  • For example... Exactly 100 years ago, Fonck (one of our International Aces) was a cheeky, young lad, turning 19 years old!
  • How does it feel to be 19? Use your imagination. Put yourself in his shoes. Suddenly something that happened 100 years ago is no longer a boring fact.

  • FWW100 Key  Today, one hundred years ago...
