“The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.” – WB Yeats
The pathos and tragedy associated with World War I is epitomised in the vast array of haunting poems written at that time, and since. Disaster on such a grand scale had never before even entered the sphere of human imagination, let alone occurred. However, several years previously, one man predicted with startling accuracy not only that a great calamity was about to occur, but also specific details related to that event. This presentation tells the astounding story of the nature and fulfilment of the Prophecy of World War I, made by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be upon him), the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
