Maitland's Great War - Maitland City Library event

It was to be ‘the war that will end war’ as H.G. Wells commented in August 1914. From the heights of hope to the horror of the trenches, the Great War changed the world irrevocably. It separated families and lovers, turned young men into soldiers and young women into nurses, converted friends and neighbours into enemies.
This event will explore the impact of World War One at home, uncovering and examining some of the layers of remembrance, including an insight into ‘Maitland’s Own’ 34th Battalion and extracts from the Maitland Mercury.
