The Great War

I'm taking a class now about the first World War and I've read some extremely heart wrenching accounts, letters, poems and stories dealing with how the war affected so many people. I've recently come across some photos from the LIFE archive from the period and I'd like to post them. I'm especially interested in the role women took in the war. So, here they are.

These are British women working as porters because of the shortage of men.

  1. Do you think, like a decade from now, the Great Depression will be called The Depression I and now will be called The Depression II?
