Essential Question: Was the Sack of Louvain a war crime or a legitimate military action?
Homework: WWI Project DUE April 2/3
"It took about three minutes for each giant shell to cover the distance to the city. The shells climbed so high that gunners, in calculating where the shells would land, had to take into account the rotation of the Earth. For the first time in warfare, deadly projectiles rained down on civilians from the stratosphere."
“Instead of terrorizing the people, shells of the great cannons, as well as the bombs dropped from the German airships, only serve to strengthen the resolve of the French to resist, to the last man if necessary, the invasion of such a foe.”—Charles Horneau, 1918
