Keeping in Touch
Communication was vital during the war. When men and women first arrived in France, they wrote openly about their experiences. Letters received from home helped boost morale but as the war dragged on and losses increased, news was censored and less was said. Conditions at the front also hampered safe and reliable ways of passing on important information.
