On 11 November, nations around the world will commemorate Remembrance Day in tribute to the millions of soldiers who perished during World War I. Though it ended over a hundred years ago, the conflict still reverberates in the global consciousness as one of the most devastating and deadly wars ever fought. Our "Causes of World World I" video provides learners in KS3 and above with background information about what led to the war and how the British Empire became involved.
