Learn about Armistice Day with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.

Armistice Day is a day put aside to commemorate the ceasefire which effectively ended the "Great War", as World War One was previously known.
It happened at 11 am on 11 November 1918. The Allied Forces -- made up of the United Kingdom, the Russian empire, France, Belgium, Canada, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, Japan, Portugal and the US -- were the victorious against the Central Powers.

The word "armistice" signifies only a temporary ceasefire. However, the armistice that took place on 11 November 1918 ended the fighting of World War One for good, with the necessary negotiations for peace taking place soon afterwards.
