The European Theater of World War I was the primary site of the fighting of this great war. While there was considerable conflict outside of Europe, Europe was the place where the war started, and where it ended. Europe was where armies, the size of which had never before been seen in world history, fought and died.

Overview

The European Theater is divided into four main theaters of operations: the Western Front, the Eastern Front, the Italian Front, and the Balkans Front. By no means was all of Europe involved in the war. Nor did fighting take place throughout all of the major combatants territory. Great Britian was nearly untouched by the war. Most of France was uneffected, as was most of Germany and Italy. Some large countries in Europe remained neutral for the entire war such as Sweden and Spain - the great war passed them by without much impact. On the other hand, some countries were conquered (Serbia, Belgium, Romania). Other countries like Russia and the Ottoman Empire saw armies marching over much of their lands, with a great deal of resulting devestation. Great Britain is an island lying off the western coast of Europe, comprising the main territory of the United Kingdom. ...
