MIDDLESBROUGH Remembering 1914-18 By Paul Menzies Great War Britain: Middlesbrough offers an intimate portrayal of the town and its people living in the shadow of the 'war to end wars'.

This beautifully illustrated book, describes local reaction to the outbreak of war; charts the experience of individuals who enlisted; the changing face of industry; the work of the many hospitals in the area; the effect of the conflict on local children; the woman who defied convention to play a vital role on the home front; and concludes with a chapter dedicated to how the town and its people coped with the transition to life in peacetime once more.
