To mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, 100 documents from the Modern Records Centre’s archives have been digitised and made available online. From the soldier on the front line to the imprisoned conscientious objector, the woman worker to the wounded ex-serviceman, the sources provide an insight into the far-reaching effects of four years of ‘total war’ on Britain and its society.
The archivists and librarians at the University of Warwick’s Modern Records Centre have compiled a great collection of primary sources documenting the experience of the First World War. I can’t wait to be back on campus to use those resources with our students.
