TOP 500 REVIEWERon 31 August 2015
This replica copy of the Daily News & Leader for August 5 1914, the first full day when Britain
woke up to find that we were at war with Germany, is good primary source material for all those
with an interest in, or studying this era in British history.
The banner headline reads "Great Britain At War With Germany" and the front page gives all of
the available details.
Printed as an 8 page broadsheet, we see statements by King George V and Prime Minister Asquith
both written and presented with much gravitas. Pictures of territorial army troops guarding
railway stations, the railways now under government control for the duration of hostilities,
and articles about the panic buying of food in London shops all set the scene, along with
photographs of young men waiting to sign up to do their duty.

As if to balance this wartime furore, there is on page 7, a full page advert from The Neutrality
League urging people to write to their MP's, newspapers, indeed anyone who could be a spokesman
to keep Britain out of what they believe is "a wicked and stupid war".
Newspaper life, however, seemed to go on as normal, adverts for those who wished to emigrate to
Australia, holidays in Great Yarmouth and the usual small ads for pills and potions abounded.

This product is advertised as a Toy, nothing could be further from the truth. It is a window on
the world of 1914 and as such is an ideal teaching document.

Bought this to use as part if a window display. I've been doing a bit of prep work today ready for the window and have to say I found myself sitting reading it from cover to cover, very interesting. This would be a fab purchase for anyone interested in WW1, for children doing projects or just to learn a bit of history. It was a good price and extremely interesting.

This was a gift for my girlfriend, because she is mad on WWI. She found it extremely interesting, not to mention all the other news items as well.
