Dear friends and associates,

Please forgive the unsolicited email. Since leaving Westminster School in July, I have been writing a weekly column about The First World War to accompany the daily news articles republished on The Browser Looks Back. This email is to keep you posted on what I'm up to there. It will be very occasional. If you would like to unsubscribe from future emails, please click the link at the bottom.

We find and republish an article from 1914 every day. Since 4th August we've covered drunkenness (http://back.thebrowser.com/article/drunkenness-during-the-war) , Islamism (http://back.thebrowser.com/article/seen-through-mohammedan-spectacles) , domestic management (http://back.thebrowser.com/article/ladies-page)  and p (http://back.thebrowser.com/article/the-horrors-of-peace) eculiar thought experiments (http://back.thebrowser.com/article/the-horrors-of-peace) , amongst many other things.

David's weekly column for The Browser Looks Back summarises the events of each passing week with his characteristic combination of fluency, compassion and an irreverence which can never be quite suppressed.

You can access the articles and essays by visiting http://b (http://back.thebrowser.com) ack.thebrowser.com (http://back.thebrowser.com) .
