This project on Wikipedia has numerous resources on the First World War and Centenary project topics.

The webpage has the following describing its aims and objective:

"In June 2014 we will see the centenary of the start of World War I. This will doubtless be a mammoth commemoration of one of the most significant wars in history, attracting vast interest from schools, universities, veterans groups and the media. It offers us the chance to showcase what a brilliant resource Wikipedia is by producing a string of FA-quality articles covering all the most significant topics in World War I.

The Great War Centennial will identify core topics on World War I and aim to bring them all to top quality before the Centenary. Initially, the effort will focus on producing a list of core topics and encouraging existing Military history WikiProject editors to improve them. In due course, it will reach out to other relevant WikiProjects and editors in general to encourage participation and get balanced viewpoints."
