Persico St World War I and Its Violent ClimaxNovember 11 1918 The final hours pulsate with tension as every man in the trenches hopes to escape the melancholy distinction of being the last to die in World War I The Allied generals knew the fighting would end precisely at 1100 AM yet in the final hours they flung men against an already beaten Germany The result Eleven thousand casualties suf.
