World War I reduced Europe’s mightiest empires to rubble, killed twenty million people, and cracked the foundations of our modern world. 

What would it be like if you were there?

Tall Tales of the Angel Archers

In a trench so delirious that you see flying angels with bows wiping out vast German hordes.

Christmas in the Trenches

Listening to the Germans sing Christmas carols and playing a friendly game of football while avoiding artillery.

You’re a Zeppelin Captain in charge of a raid on London. Then, you’re a British BE2 pilot tasked with destroying the flying behemoths at night.

The Battle of Jutland

You’re a sailor on the HMS Queen Mary and your ship has been hit and on fire off the Danish coast.

Oblivion at the Somme

You’re a British soldier from for the East Lancashire Regiment and in the first wave of attacks on the Somme.

Mutiny on the Western Front

Belleau Wood Nightmare

It’s 1918 and you’re a fresh, eager US soldier looking to prove yourself in battle. You’re ordered to attack the German machine-gun nests hidden in the Belleau Wood.

The First World War was four long years of slaughter, exhaustion, and the near-collapse of a civilization that until 1914 had dominated the globe. Instead of rote memorization of endless facts, figures, names and places, why not show what happened from those that were there in the trenches, skies and on the seas.

What did they see, hear, and feel?
