Heres a good WWI site for the British point of view:

http://battlefields1418.50megs.com/main_menu.htm

And the best of the lot (which I've already put over in "Reference, Research...)

Great for photos, documents, paintings etc. Just use the "search functon".

Covers British & Commonwealth collections.

The Imperial War Museum's Collections Online database:

This site has some authentic recordings of WW1 speeches and an excellent map depicting how the boundaries of Europe were changed by the war. http://www.canada.com/ottawa/ottawac...atwar/war.html

I was in the Lake Garda area last month and visited the War Museum in Rovereto.

There was a lot of fighting in around here in WWI,

Here is a good site to follow up on for more coverage:

Excellent site! My favorite for the Russo-Japanese War. I can't believe I forgot to put that up. A long time ago we had some very lively debates over the Russo-Japanese war........

I'll keep looking Napoleon - one of my buddies might have something on the German Navy during the war (one of his Uncles -iirc) was on the Seydltz -will have to check if Avalon had posted about the Australian War Memorial - which seems to be close to the equivalent of the Imperial War Museum in terms of scope.

Excellent site! I should have remembered that one. If you look back in the archives you will see that a post about colour WW1 photographs was one of the first posts ever to appear in this forum. I will add this excellent site by Wikipedia to our growing list. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WW1

I'm new to the site.
I've been looking for WW1 sites and came across here. I'm currently looking through the sites you've listed and they are great.
I think you have missed the most important site of all:
