War is ugly, there is no shame in admitting that.
However, more often than not, war is necessary to protect our loved ones, our homes, our country and our way of life. As a result of this, while it may oftentimes seem like a paradox, periods of peace have (throughout history) been supported on a foundation of previous wars that have been fought. The 19th and 20th centuries have both had their share of devastating conflicts; from civil wars and wars of independence to large-scale global wars as well. This quiz takes a look at some of the most iconic and memorable war monuments that are used to honor wars, veterans and the deceased.
War monuments are not created to idolize the concept of war and promote it; instead these monuments are erected as a means to remember the individuals who have given their lives to these wars so that we could in turn enjoy stability and prosperity today. Through these monuments we get a constant reminder of the heavy costs of war so that we can work toward maintaining peace. So, let's have a moment of silence and then see if you can identify all of these iconic war monuments in this quiz!
