"Frank W. Buckles died at the end of February. He was 110 years old, the last living American veteran from World War I. Now only two participants in that war -- of the 65 million originally mobilized -- live on, one in Australia, the other in Great Britain. World War I was the formative event of the 20th century. The conflict started in the Balkans, triggered by the terrorist assassination of the Austro-Hungarian Archduke, the heir to the throne." (03/28/11)
