Enduring War: Grief, Grit and Humour

Event type:
Location: Folio Society Gallery, The British Library, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB

A major part of the British Library’s contribution to the first world war centenary, Enduring War looks at 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 war.
