Three First World War themed applications

Carnets 14-18

Discover the application ‘Diaries 14-18’

"Diaries 14-18" is a completely free application that will allow you to discover exceptional sites of the Great War including: Lijssenthoek (Westhoek), Fromelles (Nord), Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, Mont-Saint-Eloi, Vimy, Arras (Pas-de-Calais), Beaumont-Hamel (Somme) et le Chemin des Dames (Aisne).

Through the "Diaries 14-18", Guillaume Naylor, a young British film-maker, takes you back to the First World War in the footsteps of his ancestor. His grandfather, Andrew, was a British stretch-bearer, and with the help of his diaries, Guillaume not only gives a moving account but also relives his Grandfather’s inspiring story.
The “Diaries 14-18” application uses the latest technologies; its video and augmented reality send you on a journey back in time! Geolocation and an interactive map will allow you to easily orient yourself and navigate around the different sites of this route.
