This is a strong narrative of the war, easy to read, mixing news with personal feelings and events (often revealing gap between official news and reality). The diary captures the authors' growing disillusionment with the war, as it gradually encroaches on her life. The diary starts with great excitement, realising its importance but expecting a short struggle, blaming treachery and incompetence initially but gets increasingly disheartened and eventually stops in 1916. Entries show growth of total war (seeing ominous Zeppelin's directly overhead, shelling etc.), experiences of her two brothers in service (their privations and her 'white-feather' feelings), personal sacrifice and patriotism, reactions to casualty lists, women entering work (she does various war work), steady collapse of domestic service (Downton angle), reflections on recognisable events such as Lusitania and on the competence of the government. Also included several poems written by Mabel and a love story in the appendix, giving a complete insight into the diarists life. NB. Mabel and her brothers lived in Germany for some time, meaning they could all speak German and knew 'the enemy nation' as many Britons did not.
