This book is filled with a most interesting collection of photographs and drawings throughout the
body of the book. They add greatly to the story which includes many personal reflections from
those who lived through those days. The author has worked skilfully through all of the aspects
of life on the Home Front. He conveys the sense of engagement where civilians identified
themselves as part of the battle lines.
In charting the progress at home, the social changes can be graphically seen. As more and
more men went off to fight, many never to return, women became involved in a range of
jobs that had previously not been available to them. They earned money, sometimes very
good money, when previously many had been entirely dependent on male relatives. They
also experiences enemy fire with the terror bombing raids by airships and the bombardment
of civilian targets ashore by German warships.
