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’”.
