Christmas Goodies from the Ghosts of 1914

Hello dear readers,
I hope you are happy, warm, and enjoying yourselves as Christmas approaches! Here are a few amazing WWI history finds from around the web:

The IWM's Great War Centenary has a wonderful blog post with audio about the bitter winter of 1916-17. This is the same winter pictured in the photo of men having Christmas dinner in a shell hole in my last post. The photo appears at the bottom of the Centenary's blog post, along with many other vivid illustrations and artifacts from this truly dreadful winter.

I've just found the new World War One Discovery Programme, which gathers online WWI resources from all over. A phenomenal resource.

Oxford's World War I Centenary Programme has an informative blog about WWI-related events and resources (mostly in the UK).
