The reason for this is that in Western Europe and North America, people focus exclusively on the what happened on the Western Front. They ignore the fighting and the millions casualties on the Southern front, the Balkans, the Austro-Hungarian/Russian border, the middle east, the Caucasus, Asia and East Africa.

The reason for this is that the snooty French think everything should be about them.

You missed my point entirely. It was that “people in Western Europe and North America focus exclusively on what happened on the Western Front.” That includes the U.S., Britain, Canada and France. I don’t think I could have made it any clearer than that. Your focus on France is peculiar and perverse.
