WW1 Daily answers two questions. What happened today in the First World War? Where did it happen? Show me a map!
Flip through daily "cards" showing important events of the first 'total war'. World War One affected the entire globe for it's duration and arguably for the century that followed.
Each "card" shows the date, a succinct description and a zoomable map for the event.
You can flip the "card" over to read the Wikipedia article describing the event.
You can sort your "deck" of events using two mechanisms:
- Sort by day and month for a "this day in history" view.
- Select a start date and then sort by day, month and year for a true chronological sequence of events from that date onwards.
- Search for a keyword like "Anzac", "Somme" or "Verdun"
The data for WW1 Daily comes from the World War One Timeline Project at Cannonade.Net. This is a community contributed project to collect time and place data for the war. You can come to the site to browse the timeline or even log in and contribute new data.
The Timeline Project currently indexes over 200 data points with new entries being added daily. If a significant event isn't in the database yet, it soon will be.
