1. "US Marks Centennial of Entry Into the 'Great War'"
C. Maddux - VOA News
"The United States formally entered World War I a hundred years ago, on April 6, 1917. The nation set aside its posture of neutrality nearly three years after the start of the bloody conflict that came to be known as the “Great War.” ... The legacy of the Great War is hard to overstate."

Michael Kazin – The Washington Post
"One hundred years ago, on April 6, 1917, Congress voted to declare war on imperial Germany. The First World War was the pivot of the 20th century: It took the lives of 17 million people and resulted in the collapse of three major empires (the German, the Ottoman and the Austro-Hungarian)."
4. "From Wristwatches To Radio, How World War I Ushered In The Modern World"
G. Myre - NPR

FOUR EMPIRES ACTUALLY COLLAPSING IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE GREAT WAR! DON'T FORGET THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE [BECAME THE SOVIET UNION].
New nations in eastern Europe also emerging as part of the dissolution process of empire! Poland, Czechoslovakia, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, etc.
