World War One was a vicious four yearlong conflict that left few survivors in its wake, and devastated the world’s economy. The war commenced after the assassination of Austria-Hungary’s ArchDuke, Franz Ferdinand, and brought all the major European countries such as Germany, Italy, Great Britain, France, Serbia, Russia, and Austria-Hungary into the war. This was due to a system of alliances that linked the countries together, which forced countries even outside of Europe to join a war they had no part in, further escalating the problem. World War One was divided into two major alliances that fought against each other.

Politically, the U.S. refused to get involved any part of the war, and kept this type of isolation attitude which was good. To conclude, one of the “great wars” might have been deadly and we lost so many American soldiers.

Stalin’s purging was his way of dealing with political opposition in the Soviet Union (“War History Online”). Many people believe that Hitler and Stalin took after one another. According to “United to End Genocide”, the words “Never Again” were said after the Holocaust. Tragically, since then, history has repeated itself many times, including Stalin’s purges.

Dearest Cousin, I am glad to hear that life in America is good but unfortunately I can not say the same. Here in Berlin life has been on the decline ever since the end of the Great War. The war left the country littered with abandoned tanks, entire towns devastated by bombings, and trench lines scarring the earth. Reparations for the war have taken an enormous toll on the economy and many of us Germans are struggling to keep from starving or freezing to death. We’ve been living in fear here ever since the outbreak of war between Austria and Serbia.
