From bombing to rationing, from civil defense to war work, the face of Britain was radically changed as a result of World War I. More than once Britain was almost brought to its knees by unrestricted submarine warfare, and by the end of the war German Zeppelins and Gotha bombers had managed to bomb many parts of Eastern England, while in 1914 the German High Seas fleet bombarded the East Coast. The First World War was the first war to have a huge impact on civilians and few were safe from attack. In this book, Peter Cooksley tells us the true story of civilians at war on the Home Front.

World War One was the first truly global war and this work tells the story of life in Britain during these times. It examines rationing, women at work and civilians being bombed by Zeppelin and even by planes. It also gives an insight into the effects of the conflict and what people did throughout.
