Brainburners (6002) page 7. The USA and CSA both joined up in 1917, against the Germans.
Ah, thanks for the info! For Classic HoE, I only have the core book and The Last Templars. Thinking I am getting ready to add Brainburners to the list.

The Reckoners probably tried to extend it, but there is only so much they could do.
Yeah, it's a pretty safe bet that the Reckoners had some involvement in the Great War. And considering that the Reckoners had a lot of abominations that already fit the mud and blood of the Great War -- things like Bloodwire, Mourning Mist, 'Golms, Agent Provocateurs, and the Black Regiment (whose purpose was got me wondering about a prolonged First World War) - it's no wonder the battlefields of the Western Front became Deadlands.
