Drawing upon fifty working-class autobiographies, this talk by Rebecca Ball examines the impact of the Great War on fifty English families with a particular focus on fathers.
It explores too the childhood experiences of individuals whose father was absent on the Home Front and compares them with the experiences of those whose family remained together due to their father's exemption.
Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
