The Imperial War Museum in London recently reopened in time to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I. According to The Associated Press, the British museum "aims to provide a new perspective on 'the war to end all wars,' as for most people, the Great War evokes images of mud, gas masks and the trenches of the Western Front." One of the missions of the museum, which reopened after a $70 million renovation, is to reclaim stories of the homefront. Take a look at some of the exhibits.
