Great War Britain
The Great War saw over 8 million men leave Britain to fight all over the world, over 800,000 of them never came home. This book offers a unique insight into the lives of those left behind. From Great War fashion to fundraising, the land army to the munitions factory, watching and waiting, to caring for the wounded. Rare illustrations from Khaki Tatler, The Queen and Bystander magazine show Great War Britain ‘keeping calm and carrying on’. At times highly amusing and highly poignant, this is the real Great War Britain and the inspiration for Downton Abbey.
