A partially government-funded set of five museums across the United Kingdom that relies on donations, the Imperial War Museums offer digital collections arranged according to type of source: books, art, documents, films, exhibitions, and more. The collections are keyword searchable, and aim to be comprehensive about twentieth- and twenty-first century conflicts involving Britain, the Commonwealth, and other former imperial posessions. Concentrated less on the history of individual units, service branches, or campaigns, the museums emphasize the everyday life of individuals through their diaries, letters, and other materials.
