A Tumblr on reading, writing and watching World War I, curated someone who likes history, costume dramas and Australia. Those are her great grandparents on the left.
A round-up of recommended reading and watching.
Highlights: • Reviews of pop culture about WWI
• War poetry

Have a question or comment? Ask me anything!
But no, seriously, if you’re ever designing a cover for a book or choosing a photo for a textbook chapter about the first world war, all you need is a WWI Horizon Silhouette photo, like this one here
just take that motherfucker, make sure that it has silhouettes with visible helmets on the horizon, and drag/drop/clip as needed.
BOOM. YOU’RE DONE. HISTORY HAS BEEN LESSONED.
Now go hit the bar, you’ve had a long, grueling day of Doing the History.
One of my favourite WWI visual clichés! :)
