The First World War, from 1914 to 1918, had a profound and devastating impact on many nations. More than 17 million combatants and civilians died on all sides. Canada sent 620,000 soldiers, from a population of less than 8 million. More than 60,000 Canadians were killed and almost 173,000 were wounded.
