Norfolk's War - Voices of the First World War by Frank Meeres (Paperback)

In stock

Frank Meeres is one of the most prolific and yet reliable of writers on Norwich and East Anglia. From the publisher's advance information:

The aim of this book is to capture the experiences of Norfolk men and women during the First World War in their own words, and using never-before-published images. It uses letters, diaries and journals made at the time, together with later reminiscences, both written and oral, to build a vivid picture of what life was like for our ancestors and this key time in our history: everybody was affected by the First World War. The book looks at Norfolk men serving on the Western Front and elsewhere in the world, including in Gallipoli and at sea. Norfolk was in the front line in the war. It was one of the areas where air raids were most common and where a German invasion was expected by many. Norfolk women played a vital part in the war and their experiences are an important part of the book – nurses served in the Mediterranean and in France, as well as in hospitals and convalescent homes in England. Others worked in munitions and other factories, often replacing men, and many women worked on the land, helping provide essential food. All these experiences are recalled in this book. Daily life is also considered – food shortages, rationing, blackouts, all precursors of what was to happen again a generation later.
