Great War Britain Lancaster: Remembering 1914-18, Paperback / softback Book

Great War Britain Lancaster: Remembering 1914-18 Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The First World War claimed over 995,000 British lives, including the deaths of over a thousand 'Men of Lancaster', and its legacy continues to be remembered today.

This book looks at the impact that the loss of so many men had on the community and offers an intimate portrayal of Lancaster and its people living in the shadow of the 'war to end all wars'.

Drawing on detailed research conducted by the authors and their community partners, it describes the local reaction to the outbreak of war, the experience of individuals who enlisted, the changing face of industry, the women who defied convention to play a vital role on the home front, and how Lancaster coped with the transition to life in peacetime once more.

The Great War story of Lancaster draws on all of these experiences to present a unique account of the local reality of a global conflict.
