Rare Great War documents go online

Spotted this one in last Sunday's Observer and had a good root around. It's a fantastic new digital archive courtesy of Europeana. Europeana 1914 - 1918 (Erster Weltkrieg in Alltagsdokumenten) is now collecting material in Germany or with a German connection. The collection covers a wide range of personal materials, including the letters and postcards of German prisoners of war, books, newspapers, trench journals, maps, music sheets, children's literature, photographs, posters, pamphlets, propaganda leaflets, art, relgious works, medals and coins. Do check it out...
