The First World War was perhaps the most traumatic event of the 20th century. Millions of men, women and children were affected by it. And it still has a resonance today more than 100 years after the Armistice. This title offers a simple, yet comprehensive, guide to researching the men and women from Britain - and its dominions and colonies - who took part in WWI either at the front or at home. Key sources are covered, including the National Archives and the many online sites that researchers can turn to. It also records casualties, munitions workers, conscientious objectors and service personnel from the British Dominions.
