World War I: Trenches on the Web

This autumn marks the 80th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Schools seeking information on the war will find this website filled with useful information.

If there is a problem, it is the sheer volume of material, with a compendious amount of detail on the course of the war, its political origins, the experience of the people who fought it, and the propaganda, poetry and art the conflict generated.

Among the most helpful features is the site's timeline, which tracks the war chronologically from its outbreak to its conclusion. There are also facts, figures and illustrations, which help put the descriptions of life in the trenches into context. Even better, everything on the site is available free.
