  • Sketch illustrating Sassoon’s account of his solo attack on a German trench.
  • Drawing of a soldier, entitled ‘The Soul of an Officer’.
  • Sketch of a hospital ward from Sassoon’s journal.

Siegfried Sassoon’s war diaries published online.

The archive of 23 journals and two notebooks of poetry has been digitised by the Cambridge University Library, which bought the collection in 2009.

Until now only Sassoon’s official biographer - Max Egremont - has had access to the complete 4,100-page archive due to its fragile state.

Librarian Anne Jarvis said the war diaries were of “towering importance”.

The journals, which are made freely available online from today, offer a unique insight into life on the front line during World War One.

Writing in a “distinctive” but clear hand, Sassoon describes life in the trenches, including the moment he was shot by a sniper at the Battle of Arras, and his depiction of the first day of the Battle of the Somme as a “sunlit picture of hell’”.

You can see the Gaza conflict from space …

International Space Station astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted this picture from above Israel last night.

Describing it as his “saddest photo yet”, the German said rockets were visible flying over Gaza and Israel.

More than 680 people have died in the Gaza Strip over the past fortnight, a quarter of them children, with 3,700 injured.
