World War I Diaries
World War I was a defining moment in Australian history. To document the war to end all wars the State Library of NSW began collecting, from 1918, the personal stories of soldiers – their diaries, letters, photographs and drawings — the war as they actually lived it.
This amazing collection – including some 1140 volumes of diaries written by over 500 servicemen and women — is supported by newspapers, photographs, maps and ephemera. The Library’s collections are some of the richest — but also the least known — records of the Australian experience of World War I.
