The following video shows the changing front lines of World War I, every day from July 28th 1914, when the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Serbia, until November 11th 1918, when the war officially ended. World War I is often remembered for its lack of movement and grinding trench warfare. While true of the western front of the war, as the following video shows, the eastern front and Africa theater of the war were, in fact, quite dynamic.
Maroon = Central Powers and annexed lands
Burgundy = Areas militarily occupied by the Central Powers
Red = Central Power puppet or client states
Brown = Central Powers in an armistice
Pink = Central Power gains for that day
Dark blue = Allied powers
Blue = Central Powered lands militarily occupied by the Allies
Blue-grey = Allied powers in an armisitce
Light blue = Allied gains for that day
