Product Description

Publisher: Birlinn

Author: Trevor Royle

In this acclaimed book, Trevor Royle shows how the conflict of 1914-1918 changed Scotland irrevocably by exploring a wide range of themes - the overwhelming response to the call for volunteers; the performance of Scottish military formations in 1915 and 1916; the militarisation of the Scottish homeland; the resistance to war in the west of Scotland; the boom in the heavy industries and the strengthening of women's role in society following on from wartime employment.
