Why was WW1 called The war to end all wars? Did people really think wars would end worldwide?

Did they think wars would end in all continents like Africa, or wars in Asia? Or was it just meaning to end the constant European wars?

    It was a political slogan. Not all political slogans are true; "Make America Great Again", for instance.

    It was more of an optimistic hope than a real promise. Wars have been going on around the world ever since, so it wasn't very realistic.

    The hope was, for the men fighting the war, that their children would never have to be involved in war again.

    This was the propaganda of the Wilson administration. I don't know if Wilson actually believed defeating Germany would produce perpetual peace, but that was the line.

    WW1 was so horrible to MOST people that they HOPED that it would be the last "Great war". Unfortunately, the Germans and Japanese had other ideas.

    It was so devastating and so many men were killed that they thought no country would ever start a war again. They were wrong.
