First World War lives in the Oxford DNB

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography includes stories of hundreds of men and  women who shaped the course of the First World War, or whose lives were profoundly changed by the conflict. Here there is a small selection of these stories organised under key themes such as The Western Front and Commemoration. Though this resource requires subscriber access, nearly all public libraries in the UK possess this so try typing in your library membership number (on your library card) into the site’s homepage and/or check with your local librarian to see how you can make use of this with your classes. Additionally, Oxford University Press has created a series of learning resources based on archival footage from British Pathe. Here is a video and worksheet that will help Key Stage 3 students consider the value of using archive materials to gain an insight into a 1914 British society before war.
