One hundred stories, each told in exactly one hundred words, written one hundred years after they might have taken place.
Life between the years of 1914 and 1918 presented a challenge for those fighting on the Front, as well as for those who were left at home - regardless of where that home might have been.
These stories are an attempt to glimpse into the world of everyday people who were dealing with tragedies and life-changing events on such a scale that it was unprecedented in human history. In many of the stories, there is no mention of nationality, in a deliberate attempt to blur the lines between winners and losers, and to focus on the shared tragedies.
This is a tribute to those who endured the Great War and its legacy, as well as a wish that future generations will forge such strong links of friendship that mankind will never again embark on such a destructive journey and will commit to peace between all nations.
