La Grande Guerra

Manifesto_1915
Il 28 giugno 1914 l'assassinio, a Sarajevo, dell'arciduca Francesco Ferdinando d'Asburgo-Este, erede al trono d'Austria Ungheria diede l'avvio - e il pretesto - ad un grande conflitto che coinvolse quasi tutte le grandi potenze mondiali e molte di quelle minori.
Il conflitto ebbe inizio il 28 luglio 1914 (con la dichiarazione di guerra dell'Austria alla Serbia) per concludersi oltre quattro anni dopo, l'11 novembre 1918.
Il conflitto coinvolse le maggiori potenze mondiali di allora, divise in due blocchi contrapposti; gli Imperi centrali (Germania, Austria-Ungheria, Impero ottomano) e Bulgaria, contro le potenze Alleate rappresentate principalmente da Francia, Regno Unito, Impero russo e Italia (quest'ultima dal 1915). Oltre 70 milioni di uomini furono mobilitati in tutto il mondo (60 milioni solo in Europa), in quello che divenne in breve tempo il più vasto conflitto fino ad allora combattuto, che causò oltre 9 milioni di vittime tra i soldati e circa 7 milioni di vittime civili dovute non solo agli effetti diretti delle operazioni di guerra, ma anche alla carestia e alle malattie concomitanti.

In questa sezione Maremagnum raccoglie saggi e studi sul conflitto; qui potrai anche trovare le opere memorialistiche ed i diari scritti da soldati di tutti gli schieramenti.
