Portsmouth in the Twentieth Century
Portsmouth in the Twentieth Century
  • Description
  • Related

The great maritime city of Portsmouth has played a huge and often decisive role in the history of Britain, never more so than in the twentieth century. And, just as radical change has swept over the nation and we look back over the previous hundred years from the first decade of the new millennium, it is clear that Portsmouth has altered dramatically in almost every way.

The city has undergone a transformation that has been wider ranging, more thorough and faster than in any earlier century.
