World War I may have ended in but the violence it triggered in the Middle East still hasn't come to an end. Arbitrary borders drawn by self-interested imperial powers have left a legacy that the region has not been able to overcome.

War is hell. It's especially hellish when the entire world is involved in a conflict that boils down to complicated alliances and diplomatic ass-hattery. So every little happy piece of home helps.

"So helpful" KB WW1 soldier diaries placed online by National Archives Events from the outbreak of war in 1914 to the departure of troops from Flanders and France were recorded in official diaries of each military unit. About 1.5 million diary pages are held by the National Archives and a fifth have been digitised so far.

Fred Francis: "Getting over the top, we were sitting ducks. They mowed us down like grass in the hayfield. As I dropped on my face, I could hear the shrapnel dropping on my helmet and I said to myself, 'There'll be no battalion left after this.'"

My little brother is doing his project on WWI. Since I never got taught about it I'm eager to help him so I can learn about it myself. We were looking through some pictures and looking at the trench warfare, and these images shocked me.

As we approach the centenary of the Great War, it seems we must strenuously avoid acknowledging that it actually achieved anything, let alone that we were vaguely on the side of right, writes ROBERT HARDMAN.

As many as a million more men were killed in the First World War than previously believed, an academic has claimed, while the number of soldiers left with “shell shock” was also massively underestimated

Franz Ferdinand (18 December 1863 – 28 June 1914) was an Archduke of Austria-Este, Austro-Hungarian and Prince of Hungary and Bohemia, and from 1889 until his death, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia. This caused Germany with Austria-Hungary and the Allies of World War I (countries allied with Serbia) to declare war on each other, starting World War.

Dazzle Camouflage was a camouflage paint scheme used on ships, extensively during World War I. This technique did not conceal the ship but made it difficult for the enemy to estimate its type, size, speed and heading. Its main purpose was to confuse rather than hide.
