Beschreibung

When news of the war broke out in 1914, nothing could prepare the citizens of Glasgow for the changes that would envelop their city over the next four years. The story of Glasgow in the Great War is both an interesting and intriguing one. This book covers this historic citys involvement from the commencement of the Great War in July 1914, to the Armistice in November 1918, describing in great detail what happened to the city and its people, including their everyday lives, entertainment, spies and the internment of aliens living within the city.Glasgow played a key role in the deployment of troops to Northern Europe as well as supplying vital munitions. Local men responded keenly to recruitment drives and thousands of soldiers were billeted in the city before being sent off to fight the enemy overseas. The city also played a vital role in caring for the many wounded soldiers who returned home from the Front.The effect of the war on Glasgow was great. By the end of the conflict, there wasn't a family in Glasgow who hadn't lost a son, father, nephew, uncle or brother. There were tremendous celebrations in the streets as the end of the war was announced but the effects of the war lasted for years to come.Glasgow in the Great War features many forgotten news stories of the day and includes a considerable collection of rare photographs last seen in newspapers nearly 100 years ago.
