There had been unprecedented levels of violence in the aftermath of new military technologies and trench warfare. Over 16 million people had died by the time the war was over four years ago, by the time the war was over four years later, over 16 million people had died. Both soldiers and civilians were present in these units. The majority of these soldiers died as a result of combat or being prisoners of war. Other soldiers died from hunger, starvation, and exposure to the elements. During the Battle of the Somme, the heaviest loss of life occurred on July 1, 1916.

The remembrance day is a commemoration of history

An armistice deal ended WWI on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. Armistice Day was established in the United Kingdom to celebrate this occasion. This day was observed on the Monday of the week in which the November 11th fell. A bill was passed in 1931 to only observe Armistice Day on November 11th, but not in 1931. Remembrance Day was shortened to Remembrance Day because of the same bill. On November 11th, 1931, the first Remembrance Day was held.
