a memorial for all wars: the Polynational War Memorial


This website includes hundreds of articles and images about wars and war memorials that are organized in four basic collections. They form, in a sense, the historical fundament which the Polynational War Memorial builds upon.

Most of the texts, images and data were taken from publicly available sources online but some were produced specially for the project including a series of articles about war memorials.

The collections:

The list of wars includes all wars fought in the world since 1900 with basic information about the conflict, its parties, the number of fatalities and links to other resources.

The memorial collection includes information about built memorials from the beginning of the 20th century. These articles typically include images and information about each memorial.

The online memorial collection is a list of resources available online that list people that were killed or disappeared as a result of armed conflict since 1945.

The resource section presents links to texts and other resources relating to war memorials.
