Remembering 1914-18eBook - 2014
World War I claimed more than 995,000 British lives, and its legacy continues to be remembered today. Great War Britain: Oxfordshire offers an intimate portrayal of the county and its people living in the shadow of World War I for five years. A beautifully illustrated and highly accessible volume, it explores the county's regiments, the background and fate of the area's men on the frontline, the changing face of industry, the vital role of women, conscientious objectors, hospitals for the wounded and rehabilitation, peace celebrations, the fallen heroes, and war memorials. The World War I story of Oxfordshire is told through the voices of those who were there, and is vividly illustrated through evocative images.
