This Day in History: World War I Ends

  < BACK TO TOP

On November 11, 1918 the first world war ended. Ferdinand Foch, commander in chief of all Allied forces on the Western Front, sent a message by telegraph to all his commanders: “Hostilities will cease on the entire front November 11 at 11 a.m. French time.”

 

As the historian John Buchan has written of that memorable morning: “Officers had their watches in their hands, and the troops waited with the same grave composure with which they had fought.” As watch hands reached 11, “there came a second of expectant silence, and then a curious rippling sound, which observers far behind the front likened to the noise of a light wind. It was the sound of men cheering from the Vosges [mountains] to the sea.” The dominant emotion for many on and off the battlefield was relief at the coming of peace, mixed with somber mourning for the many lives lost.
