In this photo taken on Saturday, July 26, 2014, the graves of World War I soldiers, Private George Ellison, background right, and Private John Parr, foreground, face each other at the Saint Symphorien Cemetery near Mons, Belgium. Parr and Ellison were the first and the last, respectively, Commonwealth soldiers to die in battle during World War I. Purely by coincidence the graves are separated only by a few feet. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)SAINT-SYMPHORIEN, Belgium (AP) — British Pvt. John Parr set off on his reconnaissance bike on the lookout for German troops amid the rolling farmland and woods south of Brussels in August 1914. It was the last anyone saw of 'Ole Man' Parr, the ironic nickname he won due to his tender age of 17. He became known as the first Commonwealth soldier to die on the Western Front of World War I, likely killed by German gunfire.

An Israeli artillery gun fires a 155 mm shell towards targets in the Gaza Strip from their position near Israel's border with the Gaza Strip on July 31, 2014A 72-hour ceasefire took effect on Friday in Gaza but was immediately threatened by deadly shelling, as diplomats pressed for a more durable end to 25 days of devastating violence. The skies over Gaza initially fell silent after the humanitarian truce started at 0500 GMT, the latest and longest of several agreed since the conflict broke out on July 8. Palestinian medics said Israeli shelling killed eight people in southern Gaza, but Israel accused Gaza militants of breaking the nascent ceasefire hours after it began. US Secretary of State John Kerry had said earlier that once the ceasefire was under way, Israeli and Palestinian representatives, including from Hamas, would begin talks in Cairo on a more durable truce.

The poorly armed insurgents, mostly with little military training, held on for 63 days in the cut-off city, inflicting heavy losses on the well-armed and trained German troops before being forced to surrender. (AP Photo/Alik Keplicz)WARSAW, Poland (AP) — On the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, Poland is honoring the fighters and victims of the rebellion against Nazi Germans by laying wreaths, sounding sirens and singing insurgent tunes.
