The following is a list of public domain (out of copyright) publications currently being transcribed in different formats. Each transcription is unique insofar as they differ is size, writing style, subject matter (although all are inherently of military focus) and finally, transcription method. Varying methods affect the way each transcription is delivered, which ultimately affects how each one is viewed. The following table shows that some transcriptions are ongoing and some have not yet been started. When a transcription has been proofread and validated it is then classed as complete.

Notes[edit | edit source | hide]

  1. Chronology of the War is the primary source used in The Great War:On This Day transcription. Due to the complex format of the publication, it was necessary to make some minor alterations to allow for a more flexible format, which provides an overall simpler layout but ultimately maintains the originality of the source material
  2. Soldier and Sailor Words and Phrases is the primary source used in our Glossary of terms and phrases and, therefore, a direct transcription was not necessary. Although the majority of terms listed in the glossary are gleaned from this single publication, there are various entries listed from other sources. These have been referenced separately where necessary on individual pages.
