WW1: Generation Of The Damned
With the world preparing to pause this Sunday to remember the casualties of the war 100 years on from the armistice, the following infographic shows the devastating toll it exacted on the pre-war population of Europe. Young people growing up between 1914 and 1918 truly were the generation of the damned. France and Germany lost over 4 percent of their pre-war population and by some estimates, the Ottoman Empire could have lost more than 16 percent.
This chart shows the number of deaths as a % of the pre-war population.
