Worcestershire's War Summary

Worcestershire's War: Voices of the First World War by Maggie Andrews

This is the story of Worcestershire's First World War. Using letters, diaries and journals made at the time, the book draws together the vast array of experiences from Worcestershire locals to build up a comprehensive picture of how the county experienced the war. It explores among other things the role of Worcestershire's women in wartime, the local regiment fighting in the Middle East and Worcestershire's huge impact on the development of the medical profession during this period. The First World War was not just about the Tommy fighting in the trenches - some had a very different experience. Arthur Pepper was a pilot before being shot down and becoming a prisoner of war, and his story is told, along with those of a Navy rating, an Army chaplain and a conscientious objector. The Home Front and everyday life is also considered, with the hardships of food production and the Women's Land Army. This remarkable collection of voices gives a unique insight into this county's First World War.
