an interesting site that can give some info about what was happening on any particular day in WW1

http://www.firstworldwar.com/timeline/index.htm

For example, today in 1914, German ships shelled Hartlepool, Whitby and Scarborough.

Very interesting.

I've 2 books each of which devotes about a paragraph of text per day, highly recommend them.
