Putin says world should take Great War as a cautionary tale for future

French President Francois Hollande and his German counterpart Joachim Gauck paid emotional tribute on Sunday to the millions of soldiers who died during World War I, exactly 100 years after Germany declared hostilities against France.

The two leaders united at Hartmannswillerkopf to remember the 30,000 soldiers who lost their lives in fierce battles around the rocky peak known as the "man-eater" in France's Alsace region near the border between the two countries.
