100 years ago in 1918, World War I came to an end. Known as the “The Great War” and “The War to End All Wars,” it pitted the Allied forces of France, the United Kingdom and the United States against the Central Powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire. When the U.S. joined the war in 1917, it changed the course of history, bringing the war to a rapid close. Now, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, you can own a superb array of collectibles.
