An image speaks 1,000 words. A map sometimes even more. Here is how Europe looked before The Great War.

This week has been the 100th anniversary since the beginning of the Great War, the war that changed the world and most of all - Europe.

It was a war that killed millions, in which industrialised violence showed a destructive capacity never before seen in history. It was also a war that made empires vanish off the map and created new nations that were never seen in maps before...  

How did it change your own country, region or town/village?

Can you see its legacy now?
