LIDDLE, PETER H. - The Worst Ordeal: Britons at Home and Abroad 1914-1918.

London, Leo Cooper. 1994, First Edition. (ISBN: 0850524172) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 232 pp, 4to (11" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions. "Expertly written and beautifully presented, this book of outstanding photographs, documents and art work captures the spirit 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 Using previously unpublished material from the Liddle Collection in the University Library at Leeds and supporting this with photographs from private and public collections from many parts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 represented: from the 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 and grief are documented 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 label mark on front pastedown, very light cigarette odour, minor browning. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling, very minor edge wear, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good.
