The centenary of the First World War has brought an upsurge in local studies of all aspects of the impact of the war on people and places throughout Britain. From 2014 BALH has been collecting information on these studies. This is the basis of this rolling listing of publications, in print or web form. The aim is to give recognition and access to new work, both generally and locally published, and to help assess the contribution local history is making to understanding the First World War.
The list groups publications by category – general, English region, Ireland, Scotland or Wales. The list will be updated every three months. To suggest a publication for inclusion send details, including how copies may be obtained, to firstname.lastname@example.org with the message title ‘FWW publication’. The listing is complemented by in-depth reviews of selected titles in BALH’s journal, The Local Historian, and by material elsewhere on this website and in BALH’s quarterly newsletter, Local History News.
