It will be over by Christmas
On 4th August 1914 Great Britain went to war.
Although emphasis is usually concentrated on the land war in Europe, it really was a WORLD WAR affecting most countries and all corners of the globe.
When hostilities ended on the 11th November 1918 it is estimated that there were 16 million dead and 20 million wounded. British dead totalled 995,939 with 1,663,435 wounded.
The war affected everyone; this book looks at Saltash, before, during and after the war.
