On the 11th of november we remember all the men and women who have served in many wars or peace keeping missions and lost their lives in the process. Some of those wars might be the Boer war, 1st and 2nd world wars, vietnam war, east timor and Afghanistan wars. Many battles were fought in trenches. It was gruelling and deadly. The first world war was also called the great war because they thought it would be the last one. But 2 decades later Adolf Hitler declared war for the second time. Even if someone from your family didn't fight in a war you can still remember other people.
