Lecture - The Dreaded War Cloud has Burst: the home front in Devon in 1914
From August to December 1914 Devon’s population witnessed the transformation from peacetime to wartime. The residents of Devon were encouraged to participate in the war effort which ranged from recruitment efforts to war charities. Dr Richard Batten, who researched Devon and the First World War at the University of Exeter, explores how Devonians responded to the circumstances of wartime on the Home Front in 1914.
