Under international law, a ceasefire is a legal agreement (often in a document) that puts an end to fighting between the “belligerents” of war or conflict.  In the Hague Convention of 1899, in which three treaties were concluded and three declarations were made, the Convention on the Laws and Customs of War in Rural Areas established that “if the duration of the ceasefire is not fixed”, the parties can resume fighting (Article 36) at their convenience, but with correct communications. It is a “fixed-term” ceasefire, where the parties can only renew the fighting at the end of their fixed duration. If the belligerents say (in fact) “this ceasefire puts a complete end to the fighting” without a ceasefire deadline, then the duration of the ceasefire is set in the sense that no resumption of fighting is allowed at any time. Thus, the Korean ceasefire agreement calls for a “ceasefire and ceasefire” and aims to “achieve a ceasefire that guarantees a complete cessation of hostilities and all armed acts in Korea until a definitive peaceful solution is found.  Britain joined the allies in the late 1890s, when it realized that Germany was serious about building a navy to compete with Britain, and forged alliances with Russia and France. But the cause of Britain`s entry into the war was the invasion of neutral Belgium, with which it had an agreement from 1839 to protect it in the event of war. A ceasefire is a formal agreement of the belligerents to end the fighting. This is not necessarily the end of a war, because it can only represent a cessation of hostilities while trying to negotiate a lasting peace. It is derived from the Latin arma, which means “weapons” (as in weapons) and stitium, which means “a stop.”  The First World War ended at 11 a.m. on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, 1918.
Germany signed an armistice, an agreement for peace and without fighting, prepared by Great Britain and France. These include the British Army, composed of about 4 million men from England, 558,000 men from Scotland, 273,000 men from Wales and 134,000 from Ireland.
