• During WWI, a British officer named Robert
ampbell was a prisoner in Germany when he
learned that his mother was dying. He wrote
to the Kaiser, asking to be released, and his
request was granted with the condition that he
had to return. Campbell spent a week with his
mother and then returned.

    • WW1 wasn’t a black and white war. The people on the European front all looked the same, and the Germans weren’t monsters. They were bad dudes, but Germany just wanted its own shot at imperialism just like everyone else. On top of that, the soldiers didn’t make that call and so many died for a war
