Extract from the Introduction:
This book considers how the war impacted on the people of Huddersfield and its surrounding districts. Comprehensively researched from the Huddersfield Daily Examiner and the Huddersfield Weekly Examiner from 1914 to 1919, from numerous other publications, and from original diaries and letters, it recounts the experiences of the courageous local servicemen, taking you to the heart of the action through the personal stories of many who served on the Western Front, at Gallipoli, at sea and in the air.
