Though the donut is a staple in many different cultures’ cuisines, it is of particular importance to Americans. The history of the American fixation on donuts began nearly one hundred years ago in rural France. WWI, also known as the Great War, was a war centered in Europe involving several significant economic world powers and lasting from 1914 to November 11, 2018.
It began due to a conflict between Austria-Hungary and the Kingdom of Serbia. Due to diplomatic ties with both the opposing nations, all the major powers of Europe were at war within weeks. Soon the conflict would spread all over the world. Though a short war, the destruction and violence resulting from it affected an entire generation of men, known as the Lost Generation.
