The author of the authoritative book Swansea Pals, which covers the regiment raised in Swansea, will be doing an illustrated free talk on his new book “Swansea in The Great War” which looks at Swansea’s role in the conflict from beginning to end. This book launched in October 2014, examines topics like tales from Swansea men at the front, the war at sea, wartime industry, women and the war, war hospitals, food shortages, conscientious objectors and much else.
