Journaux des tranchées

Logo "Soleil d'or"In the project Journaux des tranchées journals written by soldiers and military units are presented. This website of the Bibliothèque de Documentation Internationale Contemporaine (Université Paris-Ouest Nanterre) has been created in cooperation with the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) in Paris. You will find here some 150 digitized journals, mainly in French. Eleven journals in German are from the holdings of the Bibliothèque Nationale et Universitaire de Strasbourg.

The BnF offers at Gallica its own entrance to digitized feuilles de tranchées (trench journals), with for example the possibility to look for journals published by different units and branches of the French armies. This library has also created a virtual exposition on the Journaux des tranchées with an album selection of 30 images.
