There are many ways to find out what was happening in Europe or in other theatres of war while Percy was in training. One is to subscribe to the Times’ weekly email summarizing its own reporting at the time.
Logging onto the website of the Western Front Association’s gives access to a daily entry. The WFA names its source “The Times Diary of the Great War,” which may be The Times History of the War 22 vols, 1921.
A timeline is provided by first.world.war.com. Its information is taken from Edward Gleichen’s Chronology of the Great War (1918-1920).
