The People's Friend World War 1 Special

We’re delighted to announce that “The People’s Friend” will be commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of World War I with a Special Collector’s Edition. This 100-page full-colour magazine looks at the Great War as seen through the eyes of the “Friend” at the time, and is packed with exclusive archive content. Read original short stories from the war years, complete with beautifully coloured illustrations, and find out how the magazine survived during paper shortages and with many of its staff away fighting. Discover how the “Friend” kept its readers up to date with happenings overseas, and encouraged them to aid the war effort. Through fascinating extracts from the magazine from 1914 to 1918, we tell the story of the women who were left behind to keep morale up and their families fed and clothed, and to ensure the men had loving homes to return to.
