The Battle of the Somme, one of the bloodiest conflicts of the Great War. Illustration by James E. McConnell

4 August marks the anniversary of the invasion of Belgium by Germany in 1914. In response, the United Kingdom declared war on Germany. On the same day, the United States declared its neutrality.

The First World War (Great War) came to an end in late 1918, although conflicts were fought in eastern Europe until 1922. More than 15 million were killed during the war.
