The Great War: Conflict and Controversy

Since the war ended, the views of historians and the ordinary public on the Great War have changed.

Your task is to write a short report with this title: How and why have views of the Great War changed so much?

You will need to work in stages:

  1. Study the information in the background.
  2. Study the sources in case study 1.
  3. Choose 2 sources that give contrasting views of the war.
  4. Write your report.


You might find it helpful to organise the report like our example, but feel free to change this approach. Open the report and print it out or save it to your computer. Then you can fill it in.
