      This 'flash fiction' of exactly 1000 words is closely based on events which really did happen in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914 (just in case you don't know) and which changed the course of history. In this story there is just one crucial divergence from the historical reality. What if...

        1914-18 casts a long shadow across the 20th century. This lecture explores some of the ways it has been remembered and memorialised, arguing that each country has its own Great War and that British memory is especially distinctive - still shaping attitudes to continental Europe in our day. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-long-shadow-the-great-war-and-international-memory-1914-2014 Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

                The entire military history in just under an hour, with close examination of the changing tactics and weaponry that made this such an appalling conflict: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-military-history-of-the-first-world-war-an-overview-and-analysis This lecture will analyse the reasons for the failure in 1914-15 of the initial war of movement and the factors underlying the trench stalemate that characterised the middle years of the conflict, before examining the return to more mobile campaigning in 1917-18. It will include the war at sea as well as the war on land, and refer particularly to technology, tactics and logistics.

                  from SGM Lifewords Added

                  'All is Calm' interweaves a narrative of faith and football - pinned to the stories of the Christmas Truce football match of 1914, the women's munitions factory football team, and the distribution of 43 million Bibles and Gospels by SGM Lifewords. "During war is hope possible?" This was the question raised by Matt Britton (In Yer Face/The Message) when writing the script for 'All is Calm'. This play is about those fragments of hope found and the comfort that faith brought, to so many caught up in the First World War. Grounded in factual events the play reimagines what might have happened in the events leading up to Christmas 1914, with each character inspired by real life accounts and linked to actual events. Throughout November and December 2014, as part of the HOPE Greater Love campaign to commemorate the start of the First World War, 'All is Calm' toured throughout the North West, including performances in schools, prisons, and churches - with attendees receiving their own replica copy of the St John's Gospel that was given to troops all those years ago. SGM Lifewords is all about freely sharing the Bible in a one-to-one way. We create Bible resources and digital content, we run Bible programmes with partners, and we pioneer new projects to engage people with the Bible in their own language and culture.

                      This tells the story of the First Battle of the Marne from the point of view of a Welsh officer. At the start of the First World War the Germans thought that (under the Schlieffen Plan) they would be able to encircle and capture Paris very quickly, the attack Russia. Had they been successful they might have won the war very quickly. However, some errors opened up a gap in their defences, allowing French and British forces to penetrate and push them back. This short film follows the journey of the British forces over the first few weeks of the war, before trench warfare had set in.
