The War to End all Wars, the Great War, World War I. Whichever title you use for it, the First World War is often forgotten in the face of the more memorable Second World War, but there are stories to tell and people to remember from the first as well.

The two world wars took place so close together (World War I from 1914 to 1917 and World War II 1932 to 1945) that many lives spanned both, and many figures were important in both wars. Therefore, if you see a name below that you connect with World War II; you now know that person was just as involved in the Great War.

Below you will find some of those stories and others besides.
