The Imperial World Museum has now brought together all the ingredients required to launch Operation War Diary:
* The National Archives extraordinary digitisation initiative
* IWM’s deep historical expertise
* Zooniverse’s innovative (and highly successful) citizen science platfor
* IWM’s Academic Advisory Group for centenary digital projects
* IWM’s digital project leadership skills
