Your Towns and Cities in the Great War
Introducing our brand new series, Your Towns and Cities in the Great War, describing the impact of the First World War on local communities in the UK. A number of titles are available to order and preorder now, including Sheffield, Carmathen, Bristol and Manchester.
The series records, through words and photographs, how each year of the war brought a change in the spirit of the populace as the huge battles taking place in Belgium, France, Gallipoli and elsewhere, took their toll on the menfolk.
Knowledgeable authors document the stories of how these cities and towns were affected by the conflict by researching the local newspapers of the day; along with letters, diaries, photograph albums, parish magazines, trade journals and contemporary printed pamphlets etc, located in the local library archives.
