Britain declared war on Germany on August 4th 1914 as a result of German refusal to remove troops from neutral Belgium. This complete replica of the 8 page broadsheet newspaper from the following morning features the banner headline: ‘Great Britain At War With Germany’.
Read about young men waiting to sign up to do their duty, and see a full page advert from The Neutrality League urging people to campaign to keep Britain out of "a wicked and stupid war". All of this sits alongside the usual adverts for holidays by the sea, and regular day to day news, showing what life was really like at the start of WW1. A wonderful product for children interested in the history of World War One and as a learning resource.
