When war broke out in Europe in July 1914, people on all sides believed it would be over by Christmas. Little could they know just how wrong they were. By November 1918, ten million people had died and the political map of the world had been re-drawn. Caught up in the middle of the chaos were millions of ordinary men, women and children. Their very lives changed in ways they could never have imagined - this is their story. The centenary of the outbreak of World War I is fast approaching. This is not the time for yet another film about battles fought and governments toppled, but for a radical new approach to historical documentary. The Great War Diary will retell the story of the greatest war mankind had ever seen in a unique way - it will let viewers experience World War I solely through the eyes of those who lived it. From over 1000 very dramatic stories of the war, left behind in diaries, letters, postcards and telegrams, we have chosen the 14 most vivid and emotional from around the globe.
