World War I was a global conflict on planet Earth in the early 20th century, begun when Austria-Hungary attacked Serbia in response to an assassination. The conflict quickly spiralled out to encompass Europe with the Entente Powers and their allies, including France, Russia, the United Kingdom, Italy and the United States of America declaring war on the Central Powers including Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire.

The conflict began in 1914 and finally ended in 1918 with the defeat of Germany and her allies. Following the end of the war, the Germans were shamed by their defeat, and this was one of the contributing factors for a second global conflict in 1939. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Republic)

In 2155, Captain Erika Hernandez compared the network of mutual defense agreements between Draylax, Alpha Centauri, United Earth and the Coalition of Planets, to the situation that had led to World War I. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru)

Commander Spock once stated that six million people died in the war. (TOS episode: "Bread and Circuses")

In the 23rd century the being Trelane became fascinated with World War I, and attacked the USS Enterprise in a space vessel which resembled a biplane from that time period. After this inital encounter, Trelane subjected the Enterprise crew to a simulation of a German World War I era town. (TOS video game: Judgment Rites)

History

World War I, also known as the Great War and "The War To End All Wars," was a global military conflict which took place primarily in Europe between 1914 and 1918. More than nine million soldiers and civilians died. The conflict had a decisive impact on the history of the 20th century.

Early in the War

A young Adolph Hitler, still a corporal in the German Army, along with Stalin and a young Asian man, visited Anton Arcane during his early experiments in re-animating the dead.[1]

1914

A young marksman named Steve Savage enlisted in the United States Air Corps. On his first mission, he broke formation against orders and succeeded in downing several German attack balloons. Although threatened with a court martial for disobeying orders, Savage developed a reputation as a fighting ace and earned himself the nickname, the Balloon Buster. [2]

April 6, 1917

The United States entered the war. In August of that same year, the demon Etrigan played a gruesome part in the third Battle of Ypres. At this time, the Demon manipulated Jason Blood's memories of the incident, as well as that of many other horrible deeds that the Demon has committed across the centuries. [3]

Late in the War

At some point near the end of the war, the time traveler Booster Gold arrived in this era from the future whereupon he landed behind enemy lines. He saved the life of an American soldier named Cyrus Lord from an attack by the Enemy Ace. After doing so, Booster realized that he just saved the ancestor of Maxwell Lord, the man responsible for murdering his best friend, Ted Kord in the future. Note: The exact year that this event takes place in is unknown. Enemy Ace's dialogue during this event indicates that he has been fighting for quite a number of years, suggesting that his meeting with Booster Gold takes place late in the war. [4]
