232 pp, 4to (11" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0850524172 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions. "Expertly written and beautifully presented, this book of outstanding photographs, documents and art work captures the spir it of the British people as they faced and successfully came through the prolonged challenge of the First World War. Using previously unpublished material from the Liddle Collection in the University Library at Leeds and supporting this wi t h p h o t o g raphs from private and public collections from many parts of the British Isles, 'The Worst Ordeal' brings soldier, sailor and airman experience graphically close. It is, however, not just the fighting fronts which are so well repre se nt e d: f ro m th e industrial, agricultural, domestic, educational, and war resistance scenes, the response to war of workers, wives, sweethearts, students, children, rebels and resisters is made clear. Fund raising, rationing, humour, anxiety an d g ri ef are do cu men te d in this book in a way which provides touching testimony of the spirit of the times. With almost four hundred illustrations, the book spans the British Isles and the most remote fighting fronts." Very small ghost l abel mar k o n f ront pas ted own, ve ry light cigarette odor, minor browning. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling, very minor edge wear, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good
