Summary:
Electronic reproduction of primary and secondary source documents relating to the first World War, from archives around the world. The documents are diverse in scope and offer a remarkable window on the lives and experiences of men and women during World War I. The collection is designed for both teaching and study, from undergraduate to research students and beyond. The Personal experiences section includes personal collections, photographs, diaries, manuscripts, correspondence, postcards, sheet music, printed books, trench literature, journals, newspapers, official papers and ephemera. There are also a number of 3D image captures of wartime objects from museums and of a preserved trench system in Belgium. The Propaganda and recruitment section contains a varied range of material, from aerial leaflets and atrocity propaganda to international posters, postcards, cartoons and political pamphlets, showcasing methods exploited in wartime progaganda and their paths of dissemination. Themes of recruitment, training and morale are also examined through items such as tribunal case files, Kitchener's papers, recruitment listings, training manuals and minute books of both parliamentary and local recruiting committees.
