The Telegraph Book of the First World War
Available in Stock
Without radio or television and amid 'a churning soup of rumour, falsehood and fear', the British public were almost totally dependent on newspapers for factual information about the course of the First World War. This collection of reports from the Daily Telegraph's war correspondents not only traces the course of the conflict, often with eye witness accounts from the fronts, but shows the war as it was presented to readers at home in 1914-18. With an introduction by Michael Wright.
