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 https://t.co/oe0z0D7Rht

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.
