In-depth look at the Lanarkshire town of Biggar during the Great War. Includes a chapter on Biggar before the war which sets the scene, biographies of casualties and some of the survivors, Biggar women at war and the Home Front. This under-describes perhaps what is a lengthy, detailed and balanced account of how this small town was affected by the war and of how individual inhabitants fared. There are 150 illustrations including images of the town, servicemen and souvenirs from the Front and the book will itself serve as a memorial and record of the First World War for future generations as well as being of interest to present-day residents of Biggar.
