TIME AND PLACE:
Mon-Wed, Thu-Fri 9:30-18:00
@ British Library, The Folio Society Gallery, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB
A major part of the Library’s contribution to the First World War Centenary, Enduring War examines how people coped with life during the war: from moments of patriotic fervour to periods of anxious inactivity, shock and despair.
Through posters, poetry, books and pamphlets from the period, the exhibition considers attempts to boost morale at home and in the field, as well as presenting individual responses to the conflict, such as letters from Indian soldiers on the Western Front, schoolboys’ descriptions of Zeppelin raids over London and examples of the black humour expressed in trench journals.
