The First World War was a conflict which was not only fought in the battle-torn lands, skies or seas of Flanders, Serbia, Egypt, Italy or Turkey, but also in the factories, kitchens and fields on the home front. This conference seeks to explore how the First World War was experienced in industry, mining, agriculture, shops, pubs and homes of the Midlands.
