These memoirs are created from nearly 600 original letters, photographs and documents during WWI from two connected families living in London.

They are easy to read, well written, informative and often humorous.

The two main correspondents are David, a 2nd Lieutenant in the Kings Royal Rifle Corps, and May, his fiancee and the most senior woman working in a large insurance firm in London.

Zeppelins over London, officer training camp, a soldier in France and on the Western Front, Prisoner of War, and the endless wait to be demobilised, are covered in the very detailed letters from David.

The daily life of women at home during WWI plays a significant part in the letters, and include office politics, voluntary work to support the war effort, domestic and leisure activities, as seen through the eyes of May, David's mother and sister, friends and family.
