Today is the last day before the holiday weekend. For the last book, we look back to the first world war which officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28th, 1919. However, hostilities ended earlier on November 11th, 1918. As such, the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour is regarded as the end of 'the war to end all wars.' If you want to look through the history of this event, the library recommends World War I: the definitive visual history from Sarajevo to Versailles by R.G. Grant.
