What was life really like for a soldier in the First World War? Many diaries, letters, memoirs and photos are already online, but they are scattered across the internet and can be hard to find.

Help everyone learn more about the experiences of soldiers in the First World War in their own words by collecting links for these personal narratives. The goal is to find one for each Allied battalion - it's a big task but you can make a difference!
