History KS3 / KS4: Changes on the home front during WW1
British women recall their fears whilst their loved ones were at the front, struggling with money and watching the casualty lists.
They recall the disconnectedness of the men coming home, and their inability to talk about the reality of the war.
An Austrian soldier recalls the impossibility of explaining his experiences to his parents, and his desire to return to the front.
The soldiers’ joy of returning home on leave was mixed with the difficulty in talking about their experiences at the Front.
