Throughout 2010, The National Archives (UK) has been bringing the historic events of 1940 to life, tweeting them 70 years to the minute that they occurred via twitter.com/ukwarcabinet. Now, we are asking for volunteers from our thousands of online followers to take over the project next year.
Each tweet links through to an original document which is available online, allowing people to seek out more detail from the government papers. So far this year, we have tweeted developments from Chamberlain’s government, Churchill’s dramatic rise to power, the loss of France and the ‘miracle’ of Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain and the London Blitz.
