Armistice Day (Armistice of Compiègne) marks the symbolic end of World War Mundia, on November 11, 1918. Was signed between the Triple Entente (Britain, France and Russia) and the German Empire in Compiègne, France, for a ceasefire on the Western Front.
1914-Alliance System: When war first broke out, the System of Alliances guaranteed conflict between major European powers. The two major alliances were 'The Triple Alliance' which was between Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy. And the other was the 'Triple Entente' between Britain, France, and Russia. Many historians believe that these alliances helped turn small local quarrels into major conflicts and eventually war. (World War 1: The Western Front, Nicola Barber, pg.4)
