    we are approaching a very significant centenary since the outbreak of WWI, and despite all the the available material on the subject, many questions remain and a great deal of division in opinions also continue to this day. much of what the world is today can be traced back to that war. it remains a hugely important event, and i think we, as a forum for military discussion should at least think about the issues and their importance.

    i stumbled on this radio interview the other evening and was greatly impressed by it. it has opened up my eyes on many things about the war, and i plan to listed to all ten installments. its organized as a series of interviews by our australian radio journalist and presenter Margaret Throsby from our Broadcaster

    A century has passed since the shot that was heard throughout the world..
    Can't help but to think what percentage of the world is aware of the importance of this day.
