Doncaster in the Great War

How the experience of war impacted on the town, from the initial enthusiasm for sorting out the German kaiser in time for Christmas 1914, to the gradual realization of the enormity of human sacrifice the families of Doncaster were committed to as the war stretched out over the next four years. A record of the growing disillusion of the people, their tragedies and hardships and a determination to see it through. 

During the early part of the 20th century, Doncaster was really beginning to thrive, making a great name for itself in locomotive manufacture, and forging a fine reputation for coal mining on the edge of the Barnsley seam. This book documents daily life in all its grit and grandeur immediately before, during, and after the greatest war that mankind had ever known. It is the story of families' torn apart, mines and factories depleted and orphaned children running amuck. This detailed work allows us to experience all the emotion, devastation, and pride that each and every inhabitant felt in Doncaster during the Great War.

As seen in the Yorkshire Post and Bradway Bugle.
