In English-speaking countries between 1919 and 1939, it seems as if “The Great War” and “The War to End All Wars” were the most common phrases used to denote what we now know as World War I. During that same interval, what was it known as in non-English-speaking countries?
Two posters in this thread from Quora address the question but I have no idea whether their claims are accurate. And, in this thread, from a place called The Straight Dope, a couple of claims are made regarding the German and “Russian” equivalents.
Was ‘The Great War’ (i.e. its literally translated equivalent) used pretty much around the globe? Or did some countries have their own unique phrase for it?
