Abstract:
This latest CBA Practical Handbook forms part of the CBA-led project to record the physical legacy of the First World War on the Home Front in the UK. The book provides invaluable background information for anyone interested in identifying and recording the remains of the Home Front, from practice trenches to works by conscientious objectors to Homes fit for Heroes. Extensively illustrated, with both archive and modern images, the book also includes guidance on researching the Home Front.</div> &nbsp;</div> Mention of the First World War usually conjures up images of the trenches, the battles of the Western Front and the many cemeteries and memorials in Northern France and Belguim. Few will first consider the impact of the war here in Britain, yet the impact of the war on the Home Front was significant, affecting all aspects of life and introducing many changes, in industry, farming, housing and society. </div> &nbsp;</div> Little evidence of the First World War was thought to survive in the United Kingdom, but recent surveys have shown that much remains. With contributions from more than 25 authors, this book provides invaluable background information for anyone interested in identifying and recording these remains of the Home Front.</div> &nbsp;</div> More details on the Home Front Legacy project can be found at <font color="#0563C1"><a href=www.homefrontlegacy.org.uk><u>www.homefrontlegacy.org.uk</u></a></font>. </div>
