Altrincham History Society Occasional Paper 34, Asquith's War: Altrincham August 1914-May1915


by Colin Graham. This occasional paper looks at the beginning of the First World War through Altrincham's local newspaper, the Altrincham Guardian and analyses the reactions of local people. There is not only the reaction from the Home Front (the fundraising, the enlisting, the arrival of Belgian refugees), but also the letters from local soldiers printed in the newspaper, and later on the obituaries. This is the first of a series of three occasional papers on Altrincham in the First World War
