Based on the analytic tool of "total war" (see the contribution "Controversy Total War" of the author to 1914-1918-Online) this article relates China's contribution in the First World War to that of other non-European countries such as Australia, South Africa or India. The aim is to articulate the global character of a conflict, which has rightly been named the first World War and in which China certainly played a much more important role than has been acknowledged by international historiography so far. Originally conceived as an answer to the question why not only China matters for a global history of the First World War, the title was changed during the translation process to stress the importance of China in the Great War to a larger extent.
