International Encyclopedia of the First World War

This scholarly, international undertaking features almost 500 articles (that total will grow to 1000), a 4000+ items bibliography, a timeline, and the ability to sort by themes or regions as well as by subject.  A typical entry, such as this lengthy one on Ireland, has embedded links, footnotes, a selected bibliography, and a portal to external resources with access to primary sources (and labeled as such). For those wanting a solid introduction to this conflict, we recommend this site. Compare to the First World War from Spartacus Educational; World War I from Infoplease; World War 1 from History.com; and The Great War and the Shaping of the 20th Century from PBS (videos found here).
