About the book:
Enjoy a front row seat to the momentous events of the last century.
In Travis Elborough’s expertly curated collection of diaries, letters and journals, the great and the good rub shoulders with the obscure, the unsung and the everyday to bring us a unique top down and bottom up history of Britain during the twentieth century.
From the journals of Queen Victoria to the first instant web message from Ted Leonsis to his wife (‘Don't be scared ... it is me. Love you and miss you.’), these varied and first-hand accounts offer a brilliantly candid and intimate insight into not only the epoch-making events of the century, but also the domestic and personal moments experienced by those who lived through it.
