The publication of thousands of diaries from servicemen who fought in the First World War will enable their voices to heard, Culture Secretary Maria Miller said.
Speaking ahead of the publication of the extracts today, she said:
The National Archives' digitised First World War unit diaries will allow us to hear the voices of those that sacrificed their lives and is even more poignant now there are no living veterans who can speak directly about the events of the war.
This new online vehicle gives a very public voice to some of these soldiers, through which we will be able to hear their thoughts and feelings.
