‘The men and women of Bradford, along with their cousins in other British towns and cities, made a distinguished contribution to the First World War. ‘This book tells the full story of Bradford at war - not just the experiences in the trenches but also the impact the war had at home; the manufacture of khaki cloth, aircraft and machine tools, the story of one of Bradford’s most famous sons, J B Priestley, the massive munitions explosion, the emergence of women in the workforce and as crusaders for peace and, of course, everyday life on the home front. Amply illustrated and impeccably researched, this book will appeal to anyone who is interested in the response of this great city to the Great War. Produced by Bradford World War I Group, based at the Mechanic’s Institute Library. Bradford in the Great War is available from Waterstones in Bradford and the Mechanic’s Institute, Bradford.
