Broadcaster, writer and historian Nigel Jones paints a picture of a momentous 1914 from its benign beginnings to the descent into war. He portrays a country at peace exactly a century ago, but one that had its problems. Ireland was on the brink of civil war; the suffragette movement was taking on a more violent hue; and there was paranoia about Germany’s ambitions. Jones depicts all facets of 1914 life including gun-running in Ulster, a suffragette attack on a painting in the National Gallery, cricketer J T Hearne’s 3,000th first-class wicket and the opening of London’s first nightclub.

Jones is a former editor of History Today and BBC History magazines and has broadcast on radio and television.
