For those who’s French is rusty, like me
1) Deficit of births due to Franco-Prussian War 1870-71
2) Military losses WW1
3) Reduction in births due to men lost in WW1
4) Reduction in people at age of fertility due to WW1 and deaths in WW2

This Project
Charting the daily events of World War One, this history project aims to provide a bite-sized and engaging way to follow the events of 100 years ago. Using a variety of sources, I aim to refer to the main events of the war on the centenary of their occurrence. However, it's not just about the main events, I have also taken time to research lesser known events in order to help the reader to feel engaged with the scope of the war.
