One-hundred years after the start of the First World War, the Al Jazeera Magazine examines the impact of war on all who experience it - whether as fighters or civilians, adults or children, the victors or the defeated, those who bear witness or those who bear arms.

From the modern-day battlefields of Syria to the historic trenches of France, from the British detention camps in Kenya to the bunkers of Vietnam, we hear from those who carry the scars of conflict. Download part two from August 14. 

Featured in this issue are:

Armed with a camera - Reflections of war photographer.

Who was Gavrilo Princip? - He was the assassin who triggered the First World War, but why do we know so little about him, and what is what we think we know true? 

Memories of war - Participants in the First World War came from far and wide. We feature some of their stories. 

World War I and Africa - When titanic empires clashed in Europe, the repercussions were felt across Africa - as the war came to the continent's resident to the war.

Syria's school of war -  A former school-turned- 'military academy' is training the children to fight in the country's civil war.

The magazine was honoured at the 2013 Webby Awards where it received the People's Voice Award in the Best News Tablet category.
