Short Stories of World War 1 http://www.storybytes.com/view-topical/wwi/index-wwi.html Short Stories of World War 1
The British refer to World War I as "The Great War." But the Second World War overshadowed it in holocaust and in the shaping of modern history. Thus we may also call World War I "The Forgotten War." These very short stories (many of them true) explore experiences, ironies, tragedies and triumphs of this Great and Forgotten War.
Though the author(s) may have taken some liberties for dramatic purposes in these very short stories, every effort has been made to assure accuracy and consistency with the depicted historic events of World War I.
