Bat­tle for war legacy

Daily Star - - NEWS -

ONE in five Brits has no idea when World War One be­gan.

More than a quar­ter could not name the Bat­tle of the Somme as a cru­cial event in the con­flict, while fewer than half knew the war was sparked by Arch­duke Franz Fer­di­nand’s mur­der.

The study was car­ried out by gam­ing firm Bandai Namco En­ter­tain­ment as it launched 11-11: Mem­o­ries Re­told, a game ex­plor­ing life on both sides.

The com­pany’s Lee Kir­ton said they hoped it would “help a new au­di­ence dis­cover more about the his­tory and the im­por­tance of WWI”.
