World War I Remembered: 100 Years Later

World War I is among the least documented wars of those covered by the Veterans History Project, and the number of collections relating its experiences are not likely to grow dramatically. With limited amounts of oral histories, we must rely on the generosity of relatives and friends of deceased veterans to donate written accounts in letters, diaries, and memoirs, as well as precious collections of photographs. In 2014, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War II, the Veterans History Project launched this online presentation to highlight correspondence and photographs, diaries and memoirs that document veterans’ experiences in the Great War.
