This book tells the story of the people of Tyneside and Northumberland during the First World War, both in action on the front line and on the Home Front. The book is filled with many previously unpublished accounts of life at the front, the stories of soldiers written in their own words in letters home during the war and in accounts written in the years after, which have remained in family archives ever since. There are also numerous accounts published in local newspapers during the years 1914-19. Illustrated with a wonderful selection of photographs from the authors' extensive archive of original photographs and postcards, many of which have not been published since the war, this book presents a fascinating and revealing insight into the story of the North East, its military forces and its people during the First World War.
