“Northwich Goes to War - The district’s response to the start of World War I” by Tony Bostock
30 pages, £4.00.
“Northwich Goes To War” tells the town’s story in the first six months of the War, in which eventually, Northwich and the surrounding areas were to lose many of their young men – regular soldiers, volunteers and conscripts. For most people the war seemed far away, nevertheless the war brought change to mid-Cheshire with disruptions to traditional social and economic patterns of life. It is intended that ‘Northwich Goes to War’ will be the first in a series of booklets telling the story of Northwich during World War I and in its aftermath.
