November 11

In 1918, on this day an armistice with Germany was signed in a rail road carriage at Compiegne in France where Germans had previously dictated terms to France, ending the Franco-Prussian War in 1871. At 11:00am on November 11, 1918 - the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month - a ceasefire came into effect and the opposing armies on the Western Front began to withdraw from their positions. They were unaware that they took with them the Spanish Super flu that would rage through civilian populations, driving Europe to the verge of depopulation by 1920.
