Postcards from the front, 1914-1919

by Kate J. Cole | 15 May 2016
Category: World War I
Synopsis
Postcards as a medium of correspondence became popular in the early years of the twentieth century. This soon became a flood as hundreds of thousands of postcards found their way into the postal system as the Edwardian era progressed. With the outbreak of the First World War in August 1914, it was only natural that the sending of postcards would spill over into the battlefields of the Western Front and Britain's Home Front. Postcards from the Front 1914 - 1919 captures the essence of this medium in a unique and fascinating way, bringing to life the pathos, the trauma, and the mud and the blood of Flanders and France as the embattled Tommies, airmen and nurses wrote home to their loved ones. It is a book that humanises the soldiers, many of whom paid the ultimate sacrifice and never returned home. The book also includes extensive appendices on how to identify and research postcards from the battlefields of the First World War, to reveal the story of your own ancestors' war.
