This book will obviously have greater appeal in the north west and amongst those who can count Manchester servicemen in their family trees, but it also stands on its own as a nicely drawn vignette of one of Britain's foremost industrial cities during the First World War. I did not know for instance, that by July 1918 there were 2400 Manchester Regiment PoWs in Germany who were dependent on the War Comforts Committee and its fundraising efforts. Recommended.
