The First World War touched every family in the country and this
book tells a story of national collective action and intense
private experience. Country House at War presents a history of the
war through the houses and estates maintained by the National
Trust. It shows what happened to the people who lived and worked in
many great houses, both upstairs and downstairs, and portrays how
they were affected by the war and what happened to those estates in
its aftermath. The progress and impact of war can be charted
through the buildings and their estates - lawns that had once
hosted tea parties and croquet given over to machine gun training
and convalescent exercises, for example. With many fascinating and
poignant personal stories and many hitherto unpublished photographs
of the time, this is an important celebration and commemoration of
the First World War.
