World War I Hoaxes
World War One, or the Great War as it was called, was the most destructive war the world had ever seen. While the hoaxes listed below all related directly to it in some way, the greater impact the War had on the history of hoaxing was an indirect one. It left behind a Europe that was shattered and unstable. This proved to be a perfect breeding ground for a generation of con-men and schemers who preyed upon the public.
