Outline:


The First World War was one of the seminal events in world history. The First World War in 100 Objects offers a unique perspective on the world's first truly global conflict. It traces its history through the examination of iconic items like the Zeppelin, the gas mask and Winston Churchill's Cigar, to personal objects which tell the poignant stories of individuals and official documents, medals and badges. Fully illustrated, each object is accompanied by a short essay that gives them context and highlights the significance of each item.

E. Lawrence's headdress, a pigeon, the Blue Max, the keys of Jerusalem, a Mark V Tank, the railway carriage used to sign the Armistice and a tomb of an unknown warrior.
