No murder here- this is a history book and one I greatly enjoyed writing.
It tells the story of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in a time of war.
It is about what the people of Northampton and its surrounding areas did to help the war effort against a backdrop of some of the greatest military battles ever fought.
It is a serious book looking at the way this war shaped peoples lives and how they responded to the huge losses of local men on the battlefields of Europe across five years of conflict.
It tells how the war effort, at a local level, became a part of people’s everyday existence and of the personal losses they had to endure.
If local history is your thing this is for you.
