World War I was originally titled "the Great War," under the (false) belief there would never be another war on
such a grand scale. Thinking as historians, what might the stakes be in calling the conflict a global one versus not, especially for the many European colonies in the world forced into the conflict that would have had no rooting interest without being forced into the conflict by their colonial masters? Finally, how might this shape the way they look at those European powers into the present?
