a memorial for all wars: the Polynational War Memorial


This section of the website is a repository for information about wars and memorials that I've gathered during the work with the Polynational War Memorial project. The databases includes information about and images of war memorials, monuments, cemeteries and other resourses from all over the world and a list wars from 1900 until today.

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 information is divided into four sections:

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 virtual 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 list of wars shows all wars that were fought in the world since the year 1900. Each article include basic information and battle death data, with links to other resources.

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