Excerpt from The War Illustrated Album De Luxe, Vol. 5: The Story of the Great European War Told by Camera, Pen and Pencil; The Second Winter Campaign 1915-16
T home, the period covered by our volume was full of the most notable activities; while our Navy in the narrow seas h... ad proved itself master of the German submarines, many towns were realising something of the horrors of war through frequent Zeppelin raids, for which no effective defence seemed to be forthcoming. The social fabric of Great Britain was deeply stirred by the agitation and legislation for compulsory military service, and the political horizon was for a time very clouded. Voluntarism had failed to produce the enormous army necessary to bear our due part in the great struggle, and the usual British spirit of compromise asserted itself inithe measures for compulsion; but withal, a formidable army of continental dimensions was steadily shaping itself. There was considerable naval activity in the Baltic, and the wild but brief career of the German raider Moewe represented the sum total of Germany's legitimate naval achievement during the whole of the period under review.
