Summary World War I claimed more than 995,000 British lives, and its legacy continues to be remembered today. Great War Britain: Sheffield offers an intimate portrayal of the town and its people living in the shadow of the Great War for five years. A beautifully illustrated and highly accessible volume, Great War Britain: Sheffield recounts the tale of a boy scout leader's journey to Gallipoli; the terror of the first air raids; and the university's best and brightest who formed their own Pals battalion only to lose poets, writers, and students on the Somme. It contrasts the strikes and political unrest with patriotism and sacrifice in the city they called "the armorer to the emperor." The World War I story of Sheffield is told through the voices of those who were there, and is vividly illustrated with evocative images.
