The National Archives (UK) - First World War: A Global View

Launched to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War this new interactive online map will map the global reach of the conflict using the official records of the First World War from The National Archives (UK) collection. The map shows countries , territories and empires as they were during war time alongside a map of the present day for comparison. The map aims to go beyond the trenches of the Western Front and shows how the war affected different parts of the world. Over the next four years the map will be expanded to include Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Africa and Asia and will then offer a truly global view of the First World War. New
