Last day of the Battle of Flers-Courcelette today. Thought I’d share these images from our collection. The 1st image is Flers in June 1916 and the 2nd shows German soldiers back in 1918. The landscape certainly changed. pic.twitter.com/FfSJdEJK20 — Sara 🇦🇺🇬🇧🇪🇺 (@otagoview) September 22, 2021 RT @otagoview: Last day of the Battle of Flers-Courcelette today. […]

Brilliant German trench map of the trench system between Hill 60 and the Bluff- notice how close the front line trenches were at Handgranaten Ecke – to the British Bomb Corner. From Hugh Shipman’s excellent book ‘Palingbeek 1915’. pic.twitter.com/D8yxGSVlNg — David Blanchard (@Blanch6144) September 18, 2021 RT @Blanch6144: Brilliant German trench map of the trench […]

A couple of photos showing early battlefield tourism on the Western Front in the interwar years (1930s). pic.twitter.com/fTPwBqX6Hr — Nicolai Eberholst (Pike Grey 1914-1918) (@PikeGrey1418) August 24, 2021 RT @PikeGrey1418: A couple of photos showing early battlefield tourism on the Western Front in the interwar years (1930s). https://t.co/fTP…
A wonderful photo of Austro-Hungarian infantry attacking in 1914. Photos from this period are extremely rare, and while obviously staged, this photo does the job of showing how most Austro-Hungarian soldiers looked during the early battles in Serbia and Galicia. pic.twitter.com/HD5GtMmadN — Nicolai Eberholst (Pike Grey 1914-1918) (@PikeGrey1418) September 15, 2021 RT @PikeGrey1418: A wonderful […]

This Project
Charting the daily events of World War One, this history project aims to provide a bite-sized and engaging way to follow the events of 100 years ago. Using a variety of sources, I aim to refer to the main events of the war on the centenary of their occurrence. However, it's not just about the main events, I have also taken time to research lesser known events in order to help the reader to feel engaged with the scope of the war.
