SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

The First World War In Posters: From The Imperial War Museum, London - Joseph Darracott

The First World War in Posters: From the Imperial War Museum.  Tells stories not only of the war and how it progressed, but of how propaganda works, and the art is often interesting as well.  Plenty of posters from both sides, and includes everything from recruiting posters to posters for war bond drives, and reminders for civilians to "do their bit."
