Full of Hope and Fear

The Great War Letters of an Oxford Family

Edited by Margaret Bonfiglioli and James Munson

  • A collection of private family letters from the First World War that lay forgotten for almost ninety years
  • Affords a unique, first-hand glimpse into the unfolding experience of the war in the life of one family and their friends- on the Home Front, on the Western Front, and in British India
  • Transports us back to a time that is slipping tantalizingly out of living memory
  • Brings us as near as we can ever be to understanding what people thought, feared, and hoped for in these momentous years
