Read all about World War One, reported as it happened in the pages of two major national newspapers: The Daily Mirror and Daily Express; the newspapers of Kent (which was Britain's staging post for the War) and the unique perspective of the The Church Times. Covering all of 1914 to 1918 this archive presents much material which has been seen by only a few people in the last century!

This is the story of the War, how it came about, how it was fought and how it finished, in the pages of a broad sweep of the contemporary press - from Fleet Street's Daily Mirror and Daily Express to the Far Right newspapers of the Mosleyite Press.
This now includes the Yorkshire Post and we have begun to add the Communist Party's Daily Worker.
