World War 1 Witness

World War 1 Witness

A World War 1 website dedicated to combining all the scattered information from the belligerent nations into one easily searchable site.

Unfortunately this project was not successful

As the archivist for a Regimental Museum in Scotland it has become clear over the last two years that as we continue through the centenery commemorations of the First World War there is a lot of information out there, but it is scattered across an enormous variety of mediums. My proposal is to create a website dedicated to compiling  data about all the beligerent nations into a single 'one stop shop.' On the website, which will be useful if you are a casual reader, or academic historian, you will be able to find everything from battles to medal citations, individual soldiers to divisional histories.
