Child soldiers are nothing new yet people react in horror today when they hear about this in Africa today yet just over a 100 years ago it was common for a teenager of 12-upwards to go to the boer war and in ww1 some 14 year olds were fighting in the trenches after lying about their ages with so many women dying at child birth leaving nobody to watch over them .
So they followed dad to the front to be a hero
1934: Swiss banking secrecy laws are reformed and it becomes an offence resulting in imprisonment for any bank employee to violate bank secrecy. This is all in preparation for the Rothschild engineered Second World War in which as usual they will fund both sides. Edmond de Rothschild dies.
1936: With regard to the increase in anti-Semitism in Germany, Samuel Landman (at the time, secretary to the World Zionist Organisation), in his 1936 book, Great Britain, The Jews, and Palestine states the following of the United States entry into World War 1, “The fact that it was Jewish help that brought USA into the War on the side of the Allies has rankled ever since in German especially Nazi minds, and has contributed in no small measure to the prominence which anti-Semitism occupies in the Nazi programme.”
1938: On 7th November, a Jew, Herschel Grynszpan, assassinated Ernst vom Rath, a minor official at the German Embassy in Paris. As a result of this German hostility towards Jews in Germany started to turn violent. The Rothschilds Austrian banking house in Vienna, S. M. von Rothschild und Söhne, closes following the Nazi occupation of Austria.
1939: I.G. Farben the leading producer of chemicals in the world and largest German producer of steel dramatically increases its production. This increased production is almost exclusively used to arm Germany for the Second World War. This company was controlled by the Rothschilds and would go on to use Jews and other disaffected peoples as slave labour in the concentration camps. I.G. Farben also created the lethal Zyklon B gas that was used to exterminate the Jews. On 1 September, the Second world war starts when Germany invades Poland. This was because the German leadership were a (psuedo) Christian leadership, who understood that Soviet Russia was led by Rothschild funded Communists, and they feared that as the Soviet Union grew in strength, these Jewish Communists would invade and wipe all the Christians off the map.

Their sacrifice for democracy will always be remembered.
It's where the term "cannon fodder" evolved from
They were all heroes because they followed orders blindly
Here's some light reading

UK really was trying to avoid another blood bath and only went to war as Germany gave it no choice.
