Rich in primary source content from world-class libraries and archives
This collection is an invaluable source for anyone studying and researching the ‘Great War’. From personal collections and rare printed material, to military files, ephemera and artwork, The First World War highlights the experiences of soldiers, civilians and governments on both sides of the conflict and in multiple theatres of war.
The material featured here is a selection of correspondence from the Brook Family Fonds held at Glenbow Museum, which is also a source of material featured in the Migration to New Worlds collection.
