On November 11, 1918, after four years of horrific fighting and the loss of millions of lives, the guns on the Western Front fell silent. The global reaction was one of mixed emotions: relief, celebration, disbelief and a profound sense of loss. The armistice centennial offers the chance to look back and assess its continued significance today. Explore this exhibition, available through Google Arts & Culture.
