An enjoyable easy read looking at life in Britain in 1914 with a thematic approach.
Marred by the repeated use of cliches and sloppy mistakes such as the following in chapter four:
"In the mid-1900s the Russian revolutionaries Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin had all visited London.."
(Stalin was not born until much later - 1878)

Charles Moorley says:
Stalin, Trotsky and Lenin all attended the Fifth Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in London in 1907. Lenin and Trotsky had actually lived in London, which Stalin did not (he returned to Georgia after the Congress to organise the Tiflis bank robbery!), but the statement quoted is factually correct, so I'm not sure why it's a sloppy mistake.
