One of the most eventful periods in history—the first half of the 20th century—is vividly described by Arthur Bullock in this entertaining memoir. His unique insight comes from “having not been in any sense part of the establishment but instead an ordinary intelligent citizen with a strong sense of moral purpose and an inquisitive mind.” Arthur wrote diaries while serving on the front line during World War I, extracts of which are included in the book. It will delight many in Gloucestershire who have lived and worked in the area as well as its newcomers. Gloucestershire Between the Wars paints a nostalgic picture of the lives of the county’s ordinary people during this extraordinary period.
