Our current Government Information featured resource is The Great War: A Visual History.
This attractive and edifying interactive map-based resource, from the American Battle Monuments Commission, will serve as a support to educators teaching the First World War, and to anyone with an interest in how the war began, how it developed, and how it finally ended.
The history is divided into seven periods, including The Pre-War Period, each year from 1914 to 1918, and the Post-War Years. Clicking on any of these will redraw the World War I Timeline, detailing important events, campaigns, and the ebb and flow of the Allied and Central Powers.
Short video clips accompany many of the Timeline items, bringing the history of the war to life.
