From the Western Front to East Africa, from the North Sea to the Balkans and Mesopotamia, the men of one small Lancashire cotton town were striving to ‘do their bit’ during the First World War. Doing Our Bit tells the story of the war that was meant to end all wars through the individual diaries, memoirs and letters of combatants and eyewitnesses from Middleton in north Manchester.
The powerful, harrowing and sometimes humorous recollections that provide the backbone of the book are interwoven into the chronological story of the Great War. As well as dealing with the horrors of industrialised warfare, the book provides a fascinating insight into life and attitudes on the home-front in the early part of the 20th Century.
