The men and women of Bradford, along with their cousins in other British towns and cities, made a distinguished if unhappy contribution to the First World War, as war memorials all around the city make clear. This book weaves together many personal accounts to tell the full story of Bradford at war - not just the experience of the trenches but primarly the impact that the war had at home: the part played by factories that manufactured aircraft and machine tools, the story of one of Britain's foremost sons, J.B. Priestley (publishing for the first time some of his letters home), the background to a massive munitions explosion, and of course, everyday life on the home front. Amply illustrated and impeccably researched, this book will appeal to anyone who is interested in Bradford's history.
