|First World War|
Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Pacific Islands, China and off the coast of South and North America
28 July 1914 – 11 November 1918
The First World War (also known as World War I or WWI) was a major military conflict that lasted from 1914 to 1918 and involved all the world's great powers.
During this time, an Irish soldier by the name of John Mitchell, who was fighting on the side of the British, came across a group of vampires in France picking through corpses on the battlefield. Their leader, Herrick, agreed to spare the rest of the men if Mitchell allowed himself to be bitten, thus transferring the vampire curse onto him.
However not only humans were fighting during the First World War. Egged on by the devil, a big fight between vampires and werewolves took place and could only be stopped by a ritual performed by the Supernatural Trinity Hal Yorke, Lady Catherine Glass and Emil Parsons. Since Hal didn't do the ritual the right way, by using the blood of one of his servants instead of his own blood, the devil was only weakened and could return back to his original strength in 2013.
