Description of this Book

The Times has the most famous letters page of any newspaper. This fascinating selection from 1914-1918 shows precisely why.

Since 1914 the Times' Letters page has taken the temperature of the British way of life and provided a window on the national character. This series of correspondence captures the mood of the nation up to the end of the Great War.
