    I'm having to debate that WW1 was more important than WW2 for a History club..any ideas? I'm arguing the significance of WW1 as a cause of WW2 and the importance of WW1 in the arrival of Communism+the huge scale of fighting that hadn't been seen before. Any help appreciated!

    You could argue that the First World War changed the map of Europe and the world in a greater scale than the Second, it shaped a lot of new states like Poland, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Iraq etc.

    World War One was the first war of it's kind, large scale misery, death and actual fighting. It was also a transition from the 'old' way of fighting, as researching people like General Haig will tell you.

    The aftermath of World War 1 brought Hitler to the frame - and without Hitler there would have been no WWII. If I was in your shoes - I think I would base my argument around this.
