Hardship and Hope by Peter Thomas
A book describing Hebden Royd & Todmorden during the First World War (1914-1918)

This book explores the local Home Front during the War when words such as "patriotism" and "duty" were easy to bandy about.  People were expected to make sacrifices for the greater good, but what if it was felt those sacrificies were not equally shared.  Many areas are covered where cracks appeared in the social unity that the Government valued so much and what that meant to the people involved

Informative and interesting, Hardship and Hope is available from local bookshops, Tourist Information Centres and other retail outlets (price £13)
