Remember the World as well as the War

Why the global reach and enduring legacy of the First World War still matter today

February 2014

The British Council's report on the First World War presents findings from an international survey in seven countries (Egypt, France, Germany, India, Turkey, Russia and the UK) carried out by YouGov. It explores people's perceptions and knowledge about the First World War and highlights the truly global nature of the conflict and its lasting legacy. The report also identifies that international perceptions of the UK today are, in part, still influenced by Britain's role in the First World War.
