Answer 89 BattlesAccording to "A Dictionary of Battles 1816-1976(1977) there were 89 battles in the First World War, all fronts included, though this does not include every skirmish or limited action that could not be considered a general "battle", perse. These engagements include, for instance, the Isonzo campaign in Italy that involved over ten separate phases over three years, as well as the East African campaign whereby the British tried desperately to hunt down the German Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck from the very beginning of the war until the German surrender. Obviously, this involved many small and fierce engagements, but it is one entry in this dictionary.

Nonetheless, I would answer 89 based on this reference material.

i went on a website recently, and gave up counting at 121 battles.
