1913 - The last German Kaiser: Emperor Wilhelm II

Wilhelm II of Prussia and Germany, Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert von Hohenzollern was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and the last King (König) of Prussia from 1888 - 1918. His rule was noted for his militaristic push to assert German power. He sought to expand German colonial holdings, finding "a place in the sun." Under the Tirpitz Plan, through the Naval Bills of 1897 and 1900, the German navy was built up to contend with that of the United Kingdom. His personality and policies oscillated between antagonizing and amusing to Britain, France, and Russia. He dismissed Otto von Bismarck in 1890 and abandoned the Chancellor.

1919 - Treaty of Versailles: the peace treaties at the end of World War I

The 1919 Treaty of Versailles is the peace treaty created as a result of the twelve-month-long Paris Peace Conference in 1919 which put an official end to World War I between the Allies and Central Powers. The ceremonial signing of the treaty with Germany occurred on June 28, 1919. The treaty was ratified on January 10, 1920 and required that Germany and its allies accept responsibility for causing the war and pay large amounts of compensation (known as war reparations). Like many other treaties, it is named for the place of its signing: the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles, the very place where the German Empire had been proclaimed, January 18, 1871. The choice of venue was not coincidental.

1930 - Year to remember: Hindenburg's (battlecruiser) lost voyage

1930 - Year to remember:Hindenburg's lost voyage SMS Hindenburg[Note 1] was a battlecruiser of the German Kaiserliche Marine and the third ship of the Derfflinger class. She was named in honor of Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, the victor of the Battle of Tannenberg and the Battle of the Masurian Lakes, as well as Supreme Commander of the German armies from 1916. The ship was the last capital ship of any type built by the German navy during World War I. Hindenburg was commissioned late in the war and as a result had a brief service career. The ship took part in a handful of short fleet advances as the flagship of the I Scouting Group in 1917–18, though saw no major action. Hindenburg was subsequently interned with the rest of the German battlecruisers at Scapa Flow in November 1918. Rear Admiral Ludwig von Reuter ordered the ships be scuttled on 21 June 1919. Hindenburg holds the distinction of being the last of the ships to sink.

1934 - Mao Zedong: The long March

The Long March was a massive military retreat undertaken by the Chinese Communist Army to evade the pursuit of the Kuomintang army. The Communist Army of the Chinese Soviet Republic, led by Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, was on the brink of complete annihilation by Chiang Kai-Sheks troops in Jiangxi Province in October 1934. The communists escaped in circling retreat to the north, which ultimately covered some 8,000 km (4,960 miles) over 370 days. The route branched through some of the most difficult terrain of western China and arrived 9,600 km (5,952 miles) west, then north, to Shaanxi. (In 2003, Ed Jocelyn and Andrew McEwen retraced the route in 384 days and estimated it was actually about 6,000 km (3,700 miles) long.
