Today is Armistice Day. On 11/11/1918 at 11:00 the First World War ended.
4 years of bloodshed over.
While the day is set aside mainly to remember the dead, we must also remember what was birthed during it.
Cryptography, Aviation advances, Tank warfare, expansion of the Railroads, Submarines.
And not just technology. We got poetry, the likes of Seigfried Sasson and Wilfred Owen.
What confuses me about Armistice day however, is why people turn on the radio to listen to the minutes silence.
