Sunderland in The First World War - Full

  • Description

    As the imperial chess pieces began to move towards war in the spring and early summer of 1914, Sunderland responded accordingly, its one hundred and fifty one thousand townspeople busying themselves, preparing for what might come. Sunderland’s final account when the war was over would read that of those one hundred and fifty one thousand residents, eighteen thousand would serve their King and one third of those become casualties.
