WW1 Research Resources
Here are just a few useful things which you can use to look up facts about the 1st world war and the surrounding period
With this one, I recommend not going too far into the main series, since I may use many of the things mentioned as plot points, and it might spoil the surprise.

Mostly though, I recommend the various videos which elaborate on elements of the war like certain famous figures or important technologies.
The Great War Channel
