AUTHOR: Gerald Wasley
Devon in the Great War (pdf e-book)
Devon in the Great War (pdf e-book)
  • Description

No previous substantial work on Devon has before explored both the military and social aspects of the greatest and bloodiest of World Wars and the severe affects that this conflict had on the County.

The Devonshire Regiment was among the first forces of regular troops to leave for the Western Front, whilst conscription later saw thousands of men called to the colours. Thousands more served at sea with both Royal Navy and the merchant force, whilst some of the earliest experiments in aerial warfare were conducted from air stations in the South West.

Meanwhile, on the Home Front, women for the first time took on roles traditionally occupies by men, both on farm and in factory. Many also joined the regular newly formed women's forces.

The names of fallen soldiers appear on memorials in every town and village throughout Devon. This book bears witness to their valour and to the lives of those who were left behind.
