Scotland's War has collaborated with the Scotsman newspaper, one of our partners, to produce a supplement for the Somme commemorations. The ten page supplement will be published on Friday and will be inserted into the Scotsman and the Edinburgh Evening News. Additionally, Scotland's War has featured in recent BBC documentaries and radio programmes and will be featured in a Somme item on STV news this week.
Over the coming weekend, Scotland's War will be leading and participating in a number of events to commemorate the Battle of Jutland. Follow this link http://www.edinburgh.ac.uk/news/2016/history-project-honours-war-dead
We hope to add to our understanding of how the First World War altered and shaped people, families, and communities.
By publishing articles over a four year period, we will add to our knowledge not only of events but also of attitudes.
As the horrific realities began to sink in and the number of casualties began to increase, public opinion and individual perspectives changed.
