World War I

Nineteenth-century militaries are organized around "foraging" principles.

Soldiers extensively interact with locals to acquire supplies in the conflict.

The Great War ushers in a new systematized method of waging warfare dependent on logistics which avoids personal contact with the populace.

As of World War I supplies are shipped directly to the combat zone from centralized distribution tremendously reducing personal contact with locals.

High levels of mechanization separate the two groups with steel plate.

"When you get into an MRAP, you have one person who has the ability to connect to the people - up in the gunner's seat." - Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez

French settlements in the country are being actively encouraged; the number of French colons grows from 10,000 in 1891, to 46,000 in 1911.

War of the Worlds

Forever Autumn / Thunder Child

1897 HG Wells pens the serial War of the Worlds.


"... as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.


... there are no bacteria in Mars, and directly these invaders arrived, directly they drank and fed, our microscopic allies began to work their overthrow.

Already when I watched them they were irrevocably doomed, dying and rotting even as they went to and fro.

It was inevitable." - HG Wells, War of the Worlds

1911   Tunisian protesters clash with the authorities of the French Protectorate.

Tensions between Muslim Arabs and Italians in Tunis played a major role in the Jellaz Affair.

Italians are banned from employment on public works or in the colonial government unless they adopt French citizenship.

1912   A tram driven by an Italian knocks down and kills an eight-year-old Tunisian Arab child at Bab Saadoun.

Tunisian Arabs refused to ride on the city trams until a series of demands were met.

The boycott, though unsuccessful, is considered an important step in the development of the Tunisian nationalist movement.

The Biology of War: Eugenics in Hungary

Malaria's contribution to World War One

The scientific community has access to new knowledge on transmission of malaria but the military is unprepared, and underestimates the nature, magnitude and dispersion of this enemy.

At least 1.5 million solders become infected, with case fatality ranging from 0.2 -5.0%.

As more countries became engaged in the War, the problem grew in size, leading to major epidemics in Macedonia, Palestine, Mesopotamia and Italy.

Trans-continental passages of parasites and human reservoirs of infection created ideal circumstances for parasite evolution.

Details of these epidemics are reviewed, including major epidemics in England and Italy, which developed following home troop evacuations, and disruption of malaria control activities in Italy.

Clinical treatment primarily depended on quinine, although efficacy was poor as relapsing Plasmodium vivax and recrudescent Plasmodium falciparum infections were not distinguished and managed appropriately.

In essence, the Great War was a vast experiment in political, demographic, and medical practice which exposed large gaps in knowledge of tropical medicine and unfortunately, of malaria.

5 pm April 12, 1915

A dense fog drifts toward the Allied trenches.

5,000 metal cylinders of liquid chlorine are cracked open and a deadly wall of Bayer chartreuse mist descends down on the French lines at Ypres.

Five miles long, as tall as a man, the greenish-yellow fog is inescapable.

The chlorine sears eyes - burns like vaporous flames at the nose, mouth and throat leaving 15,000 causalities - one third dead, the rest cripples.

100th Anniversary, Poison Gas !

May 7, 1915 Sinking of the RMS Lusitania

"The Morgan interests, in concert with Winston Churchill, tried to bring the US into World War I as early as 1915 and succeeded in doing so in 1917.

Woodrow Wilson knew four days before hand that the Lusitania was carrying six-million rounds of ammunition plus explosives.

The British Board of Inquiry under Lord Mersey was instructed by the British Government "it is considered politically expedient that Captain Turner, master of the Lusitania, be prominently blamed for the disaster."

The blame is more fairly attributed to President Wilson, "Colonel" House, JP Morgan, and Winston Churchill; this conspiratorial elite should have been brought to trial for willful negligence, if not treason." - Antony Sutton

It was illegal for American passengers to be aboard a ship carrying munitions.

The Imperial German government takes out large ads in all the New York papers warning potential passengers that the ship is carrying munitions and telling them not to cross the Atlantic.

"The Rothschilds bought control of Reuters International News Agency, based in London, Havas of France, and Wolf in Germany, which controlled the dissemination of news in Europe." - Eustace Mullins

"International bankers under the House of Rothschild acquired an interest in the three leading European news agencies." - Kent Cooper

German Rothschilds loan money to the Germans, the British Rothschilds loan money to the British, and the French Rothschilds loan money to the French while the Federal Reserve provides liquidity with cash infusions.

"The enormous fortune of Ernest Cassel (a close advisor of Edward VII) joined the firm of Vickers Sons with the Naval Construction Company and the Maxim-Nordenfeldt Guns and Ammunition Company, a fusion from which there arose the worldwide firm of Vickers Sons and Maxim.

House of Rothschild always knew more than could be found in the papers and reports which arrived at the Foreign Office.

In other countries the relations of the Rothschilds extend to the throne.

Numerous diplomatic publications appeared after the war revealing how strongly the hand of Alfred de Rothschild affected the politics of Central Europe during the twenty years before the war." - Paul Emden

July 1, 1916

Nearly two million British artillery rounds bombard No Man's Land.

The Allied attack began early in the morning.

Swaths of broken ground prove ideal for machine gun emplacements.

British casualties by the end of that first day are in excess of 57,000, over 19,000 dead, resulting in the loss of an entire generation of young men.

This generation of young men become known as the "Lost Generation."

"The responsibility for the last World War rests solely upon the shoulders of the international financiers.

It is upon them that rests the blood of millions of dead and millions of dying." - Congressional Record, 67th Congress, 4th Session, Senate Document No. 346

"In 1933 came the attempt by the Morgan firm to install a fascist dictatorship in the US.

It was planned to be a Fascist putsch to take over the government and run it under a dictator on behalf of America's bankers and industrialists.

A courageous individual emerged - General Smedley Darlington Butler, who blew the whistle on the Wall Street conspiracy." - Anthony Sutton

"The shoe people sold Uncle Sam 35,000,000 pairs of hobnailed service shoes.

There were 4,000,000 soldiers. Eight pairs, and more, to a soldier.

My regiment during the war had only one pair to a soldier.

The leather people sold Uncle Sam hundreds of thousands of McClellan saddles for the cavalry.

But there wasn't any American cavalry overseas!

Somebody had a lot of mosquito netting.

They sold Uncle Sam 20,000,000 mosquito nets for the use of the soldiers overseas.

Well, not one of these mosquito nets ever got to France!

Anyhow, these thoughtful manufacturers wanted to make sure that no soldier would be without his mosquito net, so 40,000,000 additional yards of mosquito netting were sold to Uncle Sam.

$1,000,000,000 was spent by Uncle Sam in building airplane engines that never left the ground!

Not one plane, or motor, out of the billion dollars worth ordered, ever got into a battle in France.

Undershirts for soldiers cost 14¢ to make and uncle Sam paid 30¢ to 40¢ each for them – a nice little profit for the undershirt manufacturer.

And the stocking manufacturer and the uniform manufacturers and the cap manufacturers and the steel helmet manufacturers – all got theirs.

Why, when the war was over some 4,000,000 sets of equipment – knapsacks and the things that go to fill them – crammed warehouses.

One very versatile patriot sold Uncle Sam twelve dozen 48-inch wrenches.

There was only one nut ever made large enough for these wrenches.

That is the one that holds the turbines at Niagara Falls!

Still another had the brilliant idea that colonels shouldn't ride in automobiles, nor should they even ride on horseback.

One has probably seen a picture of Andy Jackson riding in a buckboard.

Well, some 6,000 buckboards were sold to Uncle Sam for the use of colonels!

Not one of them was used.

The shipbuilders made a lot of profit.

More than $3,000,000,000 worth.

Some of the ships were all right.

But $635,000,000 worth of them were made of wood and wouldn't float!

The seams opened up – and they sank.

The most crowning insolence of all the soldier was virtually blackjacked into paying for his own ammunition, clothing, and food by being made to buy Liberty Bonds.

Most soldiers got no money at all on pay days.

They bought Liberty Bonds at $100 and sold them back – when they came back from the war and couldn't find work – at $84 and $86.

And the soldiers bought about $2,000,000,000 worth of these bonds!" - Major General Smedley Darlington Butler USMC, War is a Racket!

"The Ore Mountains area played an important role in contributing Bronze Age ore, and as the setting of the earliest stages of the early modern transformation of mining and metallurgy from a craft to a large-scale industry.

The Ore Mountains are extremely rich in both tin, copper, silver and lead ores.

As early as 2500 BC in Únĕtice culture we find highly developed mining industry.

Tin mining knowledge spread to other European tin mining districts from Erzgebirge and evidence of tin mining begins to appear in Brittany, Devon and Cornwall, and in the Iberian Peninsula around 2000 BC." - Goran Pavlovic

War Treaty of Versailles

Under the War Treaty of Versailles, Poland is given a "corridor" to the Baltic Sea, along with large areas of West Prussia populated by Germans.

This "corridor" completely separates East Prussia making trade and communication difficult to impossible.

During Allied discussions on the peace treaty, David Lloyd George, British Prime Minister, tapped this spot on the map and echoed the words of his secretary said an evening before:

"This is where the next world war will begin!"

Alsace-Lorraine is given back to France;

Saar region coal mines are forcibly brought under French Protectorate;

Eupen, Malmedy, Moresnet, and St. Vith is gifted to Belgium;

Northern Schleswig is gifted to Denmark;

West Prussia, Danzig, Posen and Upper Silesia are gifted to Poland.

Rhineland and Memel are brought under the League of Nations and people of these regions were to vote in future, to decide whether they want to remain in Germany or not.

League of Nations takes control of land won by Germany under Treaty of Brest-Litovsk.

Some of this land is gifted to Poland and some made into the new states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latavia.

The Habsburg empire is first cut into two separate countries; Austria and Hungary who then had to sign two separate treaties; Austria is forced to sign Treaty of Saint Germain; Hungary is forced to sign Treaty of Trianon.

Several Pieces of Hapsburg empire - Hultschin(Hlucín), Opava (Glubczyce), Bohemia, Moravia, Opava Silesia and the western part of Duchy of Cieszyn, Slovakia and Carpathian Ruthenia form the new Czechoslovakia.

Several pieces of Austria - Galicia, eastern part of Duchy of Cieszyn, northern county of Orava and northern Spisz are gifted to Poland.

Several pieces of Austria - Bolzano-Bozen and Trieste are gifted to Italy.

Several pieces of Hungary - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia-Slavonia, Dalmatia, Slovenia, and Vojvodina are gifted to Serbia to form the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, later Yugoslavia.

Several pieces of Habsburg Empire Austria-Hungary - Transylvania and Bukovina are gifted to Romania.

All states of Eastern Europe became the hub of large national minorities.

One eighth of ethnic Germans find themselves in the newly forged countries.

13 of ethnic Hungarians are living outside of Hungary as minorities.

From its borders before World War I, Hungary lost 72% of its territory, which was reduced from 325,111 square kilometers (125,526 sq mi) to merely 93,073 square kilometers (35,936 sq mi).

It also lost 64% of its total population, which was reduced from 20.9 million to 7.6 million, and 31% (3.3 out of 10.7 million) of ethnic Hungarians suddenly found themselves living outside the newly defined borders of Hungary.

Hungary lost five of its ten most populous cities and was deprived of direct access to the sea and of some of its most valuable natural resources.

The total sum due to be paid by Germany as war reparations was decided by an Inter-Allied Reparations Commission at 269 billion gold marks (the equivalent of around 100,000 tonnes of pure gold).
