From Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s car, which stalled and gave the assassin his opportunity to shoot, to the Menin Gate commemorating the missing from the battlefields around Ypres, each of Peter Doyle’s 100 objects represents an element of the conflict. Discussions of apparel, equipment and weapons shed light on the realities of trench warfare, while other entries cover the war in the air and at sea and the badges of less familiar groups such as the Chinese Labour Corps or the Legion of Frontiersmen.
