The majority of fighting in the World War I occurred on the Western and Eastern Fronts, however military campaigns occurred across the globe and left a legacy in their wake. We are well aware of the concept of a Western Front and Eastern Front, but the conflict reverberated as far East as New Guinea and West as Chile. To enable students to be able to explore these more easily we have created the following resources:
- Using data supplied by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission we have produced a set of interactive maps to visualise the Commonwealth cemeteries, burial plots and memorials across the globe. Uses Google Earth and Google Maps.
- In the The Fronts of World War I view maps of where the battles of War occurred. Each point links to its corresponding Wikipedia article.
- The Terrains of the Great War is another interactive map that incorporates photographs detailing the different conditions and landscapes that the conflict took place across the Globe.
- The resource pack ‘Beyond the Western Front: Terrains of World War I‘ shows the vastly different conditions that soldiers were serving in through some unusual photographs.
