FirstWorldWar.com - http://firstworldwar.com/
"The purpose of this website is to provide an overview of the First World War. Necessarily a long-term undertaking - and a little over three years into the process - much remains to be covered. Whole aspects of the conflict are light on material at present - rest assured, this is not deliberate: in time it should all find its place in the site. This is by no means a professional website; it's authored as spare time permits and is intended at a general readership."
