Voices of War - Digital Archive

Search, Upload, Share

We are a new FREE ACCESS Digital Archive dedicated to preserving the memories of those that lived through wartime. From the front line to those at home, and through the Napoleonic era to the present day, we bring to life the stories of those who lived through conflict. Voices of War is global, covering all nationalities and languages. Check out our Second World War Army archive without registration to see what we offer, or a sample story.  

We are currently growing and adding new life stories every day, and you can search and read this for free, for ever. This is a two-way system as we know there are many personal histories out there, waiting to be discovered. If you can't find a person, you can also create your own upload. Just go to "share your story" and complete the form, adding your own documents. That person then uploads onto the database for you to share. 

Free archive access
We want to preserve these life stories for future generations and are committed to providing free access to our archive. For immediate access, just sign up with an email address. We will never use this to contact you and your data is protected.   

We fund the free archive partly with the paid services that we offer. If you want to access the full professionally researched documents, use enhanced search functions, and access other extra features, then you can join one of our research membership plans. There is no ongoing commitment, and you can cancel at any time.
