The First World War claimed over 995,000 British lives, and its legacy continues to be remembered today. Great War Britain: Northampton offers an intimate portrayal of the town and its people living in the shadow of the 'war to end all wars'. It describes the local reaction to the outbreak of war, charts the experience of individuals who enlisted and reveals the changing face of industry in the town, including the boom in shoemaking as the demand for hard-wearing soldiers' boots soared. Vividly illustrated with evocative images from the Northamptonshire Regimental and Northamptonshire Yeomanry collections and from the Northampton Museums & Art Gallery archives, this detailed account commemorates the bravery and the resolution of the people of Northampton during one of the most tumultuous eras in British history.
