Rolanda Hooch is hit by a spell.[src]

The First World War (also known as the Great War, or World War I) was a Muggle military conflict that lasted from 1914 to 1918 and involved most of the world's great powers.

During the war, British Minister for Magic Archer Evermonde was responsible for passing emergency legislation forbidding wizards and witches to get involved, in an attempt to prevent mass breaches of the International Statue of Secrecy. This did not prevent thousands of wizards from aiding Muggles discreetly and where they could.[1]

During the Great War, Rolanda Hooch's broomstick was singed by an overzealous anti-aircraft device.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • While Rolanda Hooch's line in the GBA video game adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone refers to the "Great War", there are differences in some of the translations to other languages. In the Brazilian Portuguese translation, Hooch talks about the Second World War ("Segunda Guerra"), as she does in the Danish translation ("2. verdenskrig"). In the German translation, Hooch refers only to "des Krieges" ("the war") while in the French one, she specifies that it was "la guerre de 1914–1918" ("the war of 1914–1918").
