This website allows students to explore the global impact of the First World War through an interactive map, which highlights key events and figures in countries from Aden to Zanzibar. Drawn directly from records at The British National Archives, the map goes beyond the trenches of the Western Front and shows how the war affected different parts of the world. The First World War: A Global View is part of the First World War 100 Programme, which currently focuses on the contributions of countries and territories from the British Empire and Europe in 1914. The National Archive will continue to develop the map over the next three years, to show more countries and territories across the Middle East, the Americas, Africa and Asia.
