Here is a comparison map of Europe between 1914 and 2014. What is amazing to contemplate is the amount of human blood spilled in order to achieve all that change. Also, the fall of so many empires (including the British empire and the Ottoman). I also noticed that Serbia shifted quite a bit to the north. Note that the map shows Crimea belonging to Ukraine. Almost all the change, except Ireland, was in central and eastern Europe.
