  World War I - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the aftermath of WWI, post-war depression and nationalist (retributionist) views were a prominent aspect of German public sentiment; an important cornerstone of what would become Nazi ideology.
The First World War was different from prior military conflicts: it was a meeting of 20th century technology with 19th century mentality and tactics.
The direct consequences of WWI brought many old regimes crashing to the ground, and ultimately, would lead to the end of 300 years of European hegemony.

Greatly Mistaken Expectations: The Technology Problems of W.W.I: Communication were much faster, but even with railroads it took a significant amount of time to move troops, and once troops were mobilized, it was hard for a nation to back down, since mobilization itself was seen as a very aggressive act, even an act of war.
This was particularly a problem for Czarist Russia, which was so large and spread out that it had little choice but to start mobilization procedures at the first sign of trouble.
W.W.I was truly global in scope; it was devastating in terms of casualties.

 WWI War Contract M1904 McClellan Saddles
In 1917 you find a distinct change in M1904 series, attributable to the re-allotment of steel and iron resources to other war production.
For the same reason, all (or nearly all) M1928 McClellans will have brass stirrup loops as well, since they were constructed using WWI surplus saddle seats.
For those that rebuild and/or restore these saddle to use, these stirrup loops are safety concern - the hard brass straps that hold these to the tree tend to cut into the softer cast brass loops with use, and will eventually need replacement in order to prevent a potentially disasterous failure.
