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.
