Advert Description

Oxfam Shop Newcastle upon Tyne Ursula Bloom movingly describes how the Great War forever changed the lives of ordinary people in Britain. When Ursula says goodbye to both her suitor and brother as they go to war, patriotic excitement soon turns to worry and despair. This memoir vividly brings to life the experiences of people struggling to live through World War I. Ursula Bloom's honest and heartfelt story shows us the challenges of food rationing and the constant bombing by Zeppelins overhead. Rumours of German spies abound, and even Ursula and her mother find themselves under suspicion by their neighbours. Ursula's autobiography also looks at the realities of life in the early twentieth century, when operations were carried out on the kitchen table, a pregnant woman shouldn't be seen in public, and an officer and a private couldn't mix under the same roof. Book is in good condition. Dust cover shows wear, including some small tears around edges, and some discoloration. Book itself is very good; no signs of damage.
