Do you count "Legends of the Fall" and "Lawrence of Arabia" among your favorite films? Are you an expert on the events at Gallipoli, the Somme, Verdun and Ypres? If so, you may have what it takes to ace this WWI films quiz.
On June 28, 1914 Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated. Exactly five years later, the Treaty of Versailles was signed. In the years in between, the world fought one of the largest and bloodiest wars in the history of civilization, with 70 million people going to battle, 10 million soldiers killed and another 20 million wounded.
While it's impossible for anyone to recreate the horror and devastation of WWI, with its lonely trenches, poisonous gases and deadly technology, there are no shortage of films set during this period that attempt to recreate the savagery of the Great War.
Hollywood was still in its infancy as WWI came to a close, and the war provided plenty of inspiration for the big screen in the decades to follow. The Great War was so monumental in the timeline of history and the lives of people around the world that films are still being made about it to this day.
