Remembrance Day: 

On the Home Front

War has such an all-encompassing impact, we hear about the soldiers and the men and women on the front lines, but what about their families at home desperate for news? What about the effects on countries' food and goods rationing, and the prevalence of the black market? What about the regular garden variety crime and criminals, they don't disappear just because people struggle to do their bit for King and country.
