Writer of the month: Great Britain's Great War
28 March 2014

The National Archives is again hosting a series of monthly talks to broaden awareness of historical records and their uses for writers.
Each month, a high-profile author will talk about using original records in their writing. Jeremy Paxman explores what life was like for the British during the First World War, from politicians to newspapermen, Tommies, factory-workers, nurses, wives and children.
