Format: Kindle Edition
As long as there are coffee-table books like this, there will always be a market for good old-fashioned books like this; a book to hold and carefully turn the pages. I've not joined the Kindle revolution yet - although I've been contemplating it of late - but I can't imagine a coffee-table Kindle. This is, quite simply, lovely to hold, lovely to smell, lovely to read.

The authors know their subject well and as someone who has, over the years, collected postcards, sold them, collected more, and more, and sold some more, I can thoroughly recommend this orderly and well organised study of these First World War era postcards. The book is published to the usual high standards that we have come to expect from Pen & Sword and the pages are packed with illustrations. There are some great artists here, some great humour - at a time when laughter was often thin on the ground - and helpful commentary.

This is a book which would make a great Christmas present or indeed a present to oneself. It gets five stars from me and a huge pat on the back to all concerned with the authoring and production.

Between 1914-1918 mobile phones & the internet were decades away. Instead postcards were sent in their millions. This book details the huge variety sent during World War 1, some sentimental, some humourous, while others depicted the events of the time or staunchly supported one side or the other.
