  The Watchman Expositor: A Watchtower History of 1914
In the 1 November 1995 Watchtower magazine, the Jehovah's Witnesses made a major doctrinal change concerning the "Generation of 1914." To better understand the significance of this change it is crucial to understand the importance they place on the year 1914 and how their beliefs concerning that year have radically changed throughout their history.
That battle was to end shortly after 1914 with the utter destruction of professing Christianity, and the inauguration of Christ's millennial reign.
According to the Society, Jesus was not talking about babies born in 1914 when he said, "this generation would not pass away." Thus, those who were old enough to observe and understand the events they witnessed in 1914 (such as teenagers) would live to see Armageddon.

 The Watchman Expositor: Watchtower Redefines '1914 Generation'
With those alive in 1914 being at least in their 80s, the Watchtower was apparently willing to concede that the time had expired on their 1914 prediction.
They still teach that 1914 started the "last generation," but they have changed their definition of the word "generation." Rather than a reference to people who were living in 1914, the term generation now means an unspecified length of time that is relatively short "compared with the thousands of years of Satan's rulership" (Ibid.
After 1914 failed to bring Armageddon as originally announced, the Watchtower had slowly reinterpreted their prediction claiming that 1914 was the year that Jesus "sat down in judgment" in heaven.

 1914 - What the Watchtower predicted prior to 1914
Most importantly, 3 ½ years after 1914 is when Jesus is said to have come to inspect and cleanse the Watchtower Society, resulting in Jesus choosing it to be the only organization he works though in our time, and the only means of salvation.

 WT 1914 Lies
It is a general concept that Russell's Bible Students heralded a warning, pointing to the Advent in 1914, and that its fulfillment was made evident by the outbreak of World War I in that year, thus proving Jehovah's favor on the Bible Students' movement.
The 1914 parousia being the nucleus of Jehovah's Witnesses' present "good news of the Kingdom" message, the Watch Tower has served to nurture that misconception about their predecessors' early teaching with misleading inferences in their publications over the past half century.
But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble.

 1914 The Great War Review - GamersHell.com
Only one of the features which makes 1914 unique compared to other turn based strategy titles is that units don’t freeze once they have completed their move.
Personally I felt that 1914 is missing some small (and bigger) features in gameplay although what might be excusable since the company already lacked money during the final steps of development.
The fear that a game like 1914 which was finished under financial pressure might be a candidate for a “bug fest” is understandable and as expected it isn’t without flaws.

 August 1914 (Alexander Solzhenitsyn) - book review
Using their superbly efficient railway system, the outnumbered Germans concentrated their forces against the Russian Second Army, and in the battle of Tannenberg they surrounded and destroyed its central corps.
Concentrating more on the "fog of war" at the army and corps level than on the horrors of the front line, Solzhenitsyn has produced one of the best fictional reconstructions of a battle I have read.
The otherwise tight focus on the battle, however, gives August 1914 a unity and a completeness which makes all this seem a bit out of place.

Second, Tannenberg 1914 demonstrates how an army must be trained and prepared for the war that it is likely to fight; strategic success is the result of years of effort, and cannot be conjured up by ad hoc means.
In 1914 Russia and France had entered into an alliance which compelled Russia to launch offensive military operations soon after Germany began the war in the West.

1914 "In this chapter we present the Bible evidence proving that the full end of the times of the gentiles, i.e., the full end of their lease of dominion, will be reached in A.D. 1914; and that the date will be the farthest limit of the rule of imperfect men.

Thus, in a discourse given on September 30, 1914, A.H.

 Jehovah's Witnesses 1914   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Witnesses calculate the 1914 date from the seven times described in Daniel chapter 4 by applying a 360 day year for each of the 7 times, which yields 2520 days, then they take a day for each year, which yields 2520 years.
They place the start point of the 7 times in the year 607 BCE and arrive at the end point in 1914 CE.
However, since this period of 2520 years may be applied to any start point on the Biblical time line, the question is, "which is the correct start point to select?" The events described in Daniel chapter 4 provide a valuable clue to the answer.

 BBC NEWS | Special Report | 1998 | 10/98 | World War I | The Christmas truce
So the Christmas truce of 1914 does not stand alone; on the other hand it is undoubtedly the greatest example of its kind.
Publishing a year later, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his history of 1914 called the Christmas truce "an amazing spectacle" and in a memorable description, saluted it as "one human episode amid all the atrocities which have stained the memory of the war".
The phrase sums up the attraction of the truce: it is the human dimension which means that this relatively obscure event in the fifth month of a 52-month war is still remembered and will continue to catch the imagination.
