'To capture the character, spirit and shape of this momentous year', Bostridge's book approaches 1914 through stories and episodes ranging from headline news, including the slashing of Velazquez's Rokeby Venus by a suffragette, to obscure events such as the opening of the new Glastonbury Festival on 5 August; and throughout the year there are comments by Prime Minister Asquith himself - not from a political diary, but from his letters to the young woman he loved.
