Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Housewives Called to War!

Over the years, authors, publishers of history and text books, and other websites have drawn heavily (sometimes without asking permission) on the multiple productions from WWW.WORLDWAR1.COM. Here is an article from the PBS History of the U.S. website designed to help history teachers in their classrooms.  Our site founder Mike Iavarone and I provided images and text for a number of their articles that are still in use today.  MH

  1. Thanks for reposting this! Beyond the specific advice about carefully using food and clothing, the article gives us a lot of information about how people lived and what they had access to in 1917. How our lives have changed.
