Reference Resource: National Archive (UK) Launches First World War Portal

From the Archives:

Today we are launching a new First World War portal and announcing our plans to mark the centenary of the First World War with an extensive programme, spanning a five-year period from 2014 – 2019.

With primary sources at its heart, the programme – First World War 100 – aims to attract a new audience for archives during the centenary, as well as offering historians and regular archive users fresh insights into this landmark conflict.

We will be exploring key aspects of the war through our themes of diplomacy, technology, home front, air and sea, peace, bravery and courage, medicine and health, and global perspectives.
