The First World War claimed over 995,000 British lives, and its legacy continues to be remembered today. Great War Britain Leeds offers an intimate portrayal of the city and its people living in the shadow of the 'war to end all wars'. It describes the local reaction to the outbreak of war, the experience of individuals who enlisted, the changing face of industry and related unrest, the work of the many hospitals in the area, the effect of the conflict on children, the women who defied convention to play a vital role on the home front, and how the city and its people coped with the transition to life in peacetime once more. The Great War story of Leeds is told through the voices of those who were there and is vividly illustrated with images from the archives of Leeds Museums & Galleries
