Kept putting in Clemenceau and wondering why the name didn't work. Realized it was president and not prime minister. Sometimes it helps to read the question. Great quiz!

I was also thinking of Clemenceau though I couldn't remember his name exactly, in spite of doing a research project on him in 9th grade. Still, got most of these right. The taunt on the front page was wrong!

Yes, the question about France should be about Clemenceau as PM because he was really the one in control of France during the later stages of the war. I have not made an extensive study of the presidency vs. the prime minister under the French 3rd Republic, or whether the presidency became more powerful under De Gaulle and the French 5th Republic, but I DO know that in WWI, it was the Tiger of France who was calling the shots when the last shots were fired.

President certainly became more powerful in the 5th republic, but I don't know how it worked in the 3rd.

A quick search shows more reliable pages saying they are Australians, even though the photo is featured on pages about SA involvement in WW2.

phosgene was first made WAY before 1916 by a brit named John Davy incidentally, its the most simple chemistry ever - di chloro methane, two chlorine atoms strapped to a methane molecule. You can make it with GCSE chemistry knowledge

Is 'trivia' really the right word for this quiz? Firstly, these are important pieces of information about WW1. But it also strikes me that it's probably not a great idea to be seeming to trivialise a tragic, pointless conflict like the Great War.

I know what you mean. But trivia has come to mean "game of knowing facts", even if the facts aren't trivial.

Could you loosen the spelling a bit for Zeppelin? I remembered it as "zepplin" and had to root around for it.

Why President of France instead of the Prime Minister?
