Remembering 1914-18eBook - 2014
World War I claimed more than 900,000 British lives, and its legacy continues to be remembered today. Great War Britain: Exeter offers an in-depth portrait of the town and its people during the "war to end all wars." It describes the local reaction to the war's outbreak; charts the experience of individuals who enlisted; shares many first-hand experiences, including tales of the Zeppelin raids and "spy hunts" of the era; examines the work of local hospitals; visits local POW camps; and explains how the city and its people coped with the transition to life in peacetime. Vividly illustrated with evocative images from the collections of the Devon & Exeter Institution and also from the Heritage Centre and County Record Office, it commemorates the bravery and sacrifice of Exeter's people between 1914 and 1918.
