World War 1 Primary Source Site

Soldier's Mail: Letters Home from a New England Soldier 1916-1919 features the writings of Sgt. Sam Avery while serving on the front lines during the Mexican Border Campaign and then in France with the 26th Division as part of the AEF. Fascinating eyewitness account from the hot sands along the Rio Grande to the cold mud along the Meuse. Letters are posted on the same date they were originally written 91 years ago. The site also features interactive maps, original period musical recordings, photos and more.

Another one dealing with the Russian Civil War and the Polish-Soviet War.

http://web.ku.edu/~eceurope/communis...e1917/ch2.html

Another good one with articles and pictures of the medals awarded.

Hi
I thought I had seen most WW1 websites but you guys have put me to shame!

If you are interested in personal accounts then you will find http://www.war-diary.com/ fascinating. It's got personal diaries, letters and memoirs from several wars and is really well laid out to find your way around by country.
My website is about my great uncle Harold's memoir of WW1;http://www.shalligettoblighty.co.uk/index.htm. It probably doesn't have enough detailed information on the war to keep you guys interested for long but have a quick look anyway if you get a chance!

Hope this isn't getting off track, interesting sites about specific elements of the war are:

www.diggerhistory.info/pages-slang/ww1.htm
- has great page of slang that was used in the trenches

http://www.brucebairnsfather.org.uk/
- is all about the soldier and cartoonist who created 'Old Bill

Apologies if you already have this one:
www.gwpda.org
Fantastic photos and documents archived for ease of use.

This one isn't just WWI, but kind of fun. Check out the clickable country maps. You get some info about parts of the French WWI frontline one otherwise never gets to hear of for instance. (There's an English version of the site, so don't worry.)
