A signal that life would not continue as normal on the Home Front during the First World War was the passing of the Defence of the Realm Act (DORA) in 1914, granting the government unprecedented powers over all aspects of British life. Drawing on the extensive archives of the Imperial War Museums, this book explores contemporary diaries, letters and newspaper reports to reveal vivid and personal details of how life in Britain changed between 1914 and 1918.
