Sad part is, even in WW2 no one really remembers the Soviets and how much they did.

The only thing I can remember was the Winter War.

Commemorate might be a better term.

If this forum was in Cyrillic the "memory" you allude to might be perceived differently.

Wow.. Are you kidding? I'm not a history freak, but seriously only celebrate of WW1 and others war history is irrelevant.

Why not celebrate every single war in the human history since the birth of the human. I feel like people only care about WW1 only and not even bother looking at their civil war and many other wars that happen before WW1.

We can celebrate all the war in the human history, but we have no sympathy for that. Mostly, we don't give a shit about others war.


I think you missed the point. The topic was started since WW1 celebrates it's 100th anniversary. Just because a topic is started on a certain war, doesn't mean others aren't remembered.

Read the book "all quiet on the western front" it will make you realize that even back in the primitive days war was horrible and even though people didn't have the technology to kill you by looking at you (a.k.a. apache gunships and other advanced vehicle tech) it was still awful because of the advent of high explosives, HMG's and artillery. But... at least these days there's no need to get innocent horses involved.

All quiet on the western front is a really short book so there's really no excuse for not reading it, it's great.


Now that is a great book. One of my favorites.

Celebrate? Are you kidding me? Happy 100th anniversary of mass murders, deaths, rapes and total destruction, or what? This ain't' no Christmas friends... no need to celebrate the shame of humankind. This kind of threads shouldn't be brought up here on CR, since it can be pretty sensitive and rash. (in my opinion)

It's not "celebrate" and that wasn't my intention. I brought it up to discuss, especially among those who like history. It is interesting to me besides those points, because this was the world's first global war.

Mass murder, rape, destruction shouldn't be glorified of course, but it IS interesting to discuss. People are just taking it the wrong way as usual.

I'm not thinking anything bad about your intentions, friend. I know, YOU made this thread because of your interest in history. I'm interested in history too. The message was to ignorant people who claims this 'business' to be something funny to make a joke of. I'm not trying to be rude to anyone, I just want people to be considerate. Nothing personal

Because most are ignorant of our history. They only bring up the ones that are "commonly" known.

Nah, I'm sorry I misunderstood you. It's just that as of late, Crunchy threads always get into the wrong vibe, and it always goes off target >_>

WWI changed more than people think. Prior to WWI, the US was just some country. The Spanish-American war gave the US worldwide colonies, making it a small empire, but it was still an upstart compared to the English, Spanish, French, Germans, or Dutch. But AFTER WWI, the US was a world superpower. The whole of world politics was changed. The whole of human history was changed.

So for those who say, "no one cares about WWI, only WWII" you must realize what WWI actually brought about. Our modern world (as we know it) would not exist without it.
