Commemorating the WWI Centennial

July 2014 marks 100 years since the beginning of World War I.

Every Wednesday, we will feature a new post that explores the tragedy, nuance, and legacy of World War I, in everything from the structure of Europe to poetry from the battlefields.

For more on the Great War, you can also follow our Tumblr and our World War I Centennial board on Pinterest, and engage with us on Twitter using the hashtag #WWWeds.

Join us this summer and honor the First World War with the finest scholarship from Cambridge University Press.
