State Library of NSW: World War 1 digital collections

Description

The personal diaries and letters documenting Australian’s experiences of the Great War are one of the great strengths of the Library’s World War I collections.

Many of these were acquired soon after the war ended. They capture the authentic and personal observations of those who served - before their memories were diluted by the passing of time and unreliable reminiscences.
Browse over 1200 volumes of diaries and letters written by 550 diarists including soldiers, nurses, journalists and artists.
