A Welsh County at War is not a military history of horror in the trenches, but a social and cultural history of life in one Welsh county during World War I. Through detailed historical research, Jenkins shows the impact of the Great War on the everyday lives, opinions and actions of people at home.

Meticulously researched and written in an accessible style, this book will be read profitably by anyone interested in how world events can change the lives of ordinary people. - PROF. PAUL O'LEARY, PROFESSOR OF WELSH HISTORY AT ABERYSTWYTH UNIVERSITY

A Welsh County at War offers an unusual view of the First World War. Rather than a military history of horror in the trenches, this is a social and cultural study of the impact of the Great War on the everyday lives, opinions and actions of those on the home front. The fruit of detailed historical research in primary and secondary sources, the book highlights changing attitudes to the military before the war, army recruitment methods, differing responses of religious leaders, treatment of Germans living in the county, feelings about 'unpatriotic' farmers, the workings of military appeal tribunals, family and school life, patriotism and pacifism, and how returning soldiers dealt with coming home. Although the detail relates to Ceredigion, its relevance is much wider.
