List of World War I battles


List of World War I battles

World War One, which lasted from August 1914 to November 1918, was, at the time, the largest single war ever to have occurred. There was a large number of allies on each side of the conflict, and their geographical location and that of their imperial provinces meant that parts of the war were fought all over Europe, and in other places such as North Africa and the Middle East. A battle is a smaller conflict between two military enemies that often makes up part of a war. This is a list (though not exhaustive) of the battles of world war one, in chronological order. They are organised as to the opening date of the battle.
