There are many sites on the internet covering the First World
War. These are some of the ones I like to use:
- The Spartacus
website has large amounts of information about the First World War and many
other aspects of history. I particularly like the quotations from people involved
in the War. It is very pupil-friendly.
- The BBC
site contains an excellent animation of how the Western Front changed through
- The firstworldwar.com
site has a huge amount of excellent material.
- Hellfire Corner,
named after a landmark of the Ypres Salient, contains many articles submitted
by people interested in the various aspects of the War.
- "Silent Witnesses"
is an attempt to update the book "Silent Cities" which was originally
published in 1929. It gives details of many of the cemeteries of the Western
- This site also gives details of
cemeteries and is based on information from the CWGC site, while this
one has many photos and plans of cemeteries in the Ypres area.
- The World War I Document Archive
is "what it says on the tin", and includes an extensive Links
- The Long, Long Trail is "The
story of the British Army in the Great War 1914-1918". However, being

the name might refer to the time that can be spent on researching such matters.
It is also has a good section aimed at schools.
- Art of
the First World War is about an exhibition held to commemorate the 80th
aniversary of the end of the war in 1918. It has information about one hundred
pictures and their artists.
- Sandra Banawich
and Steven Dowd have produced
excellent sites about Newton-le-Willows and its history.
- www.mlb.com has nothing to do with the
First World War, but is a useful site to get information about Dontrelle Willis,
Derek Jeter, or the DH
Rule. Everyone should have more than one interest!
