Victory came on November 11th, 1918 at 11;00 AM. The war was over and the Triple Entente had won, but at what cost and won what. The terrible war of attrition came to an end and the slaughter ground to a halt but the political victory was to tune out to be hollow. The Germans had reached a breaking point and agreed to unconditional surrender and would in the end be subjected to the harsh condition of the Treaty of Versailles.

One French General stated, "I fear that all we have done is to take a break from the war for 20 years". This statement was to prove only too true with the rise of Nazism in Germany and a renewal of European and then world war in 1939.
