British Postcards of the First World War, Paperback Book

British Postcards of the First World War Paperback

Part of the Shire Library series



Postcards sent by men on the front, and to them by their families, are among the most numerous, and most telling, surviving artefacts of the Great War.

They tell us much about attitudes towards the war, and provide a great insight into men's lives, and into the thoughts and emotions of those left behind.

Very different in their illustration, and in their writing, between the beginning of the war and the end, postcards provide a social history of the war in microcosm.

Illustrated with a wide range of postcards, this is a fascinating look into the response of the British people to the horrors of the war.
