Marjorie's War, 5 Aug 2012
This is a delightful book with a real in-depth insight into the social history of the lives of those whose brothers, sons and husbands were fighting in WW1. It revolves around previously unpublished correspondence among members of four families and illuminates wonderfully their daily lives, their thoughts and their heartbreak. The letters are interspersed with detailed explanatory notes and annotations, together with maps and photographs and the whole merges seamlessly. It is a book that will not only appeal to those researching WW1 and also those who have a keen interest in social history.
