Great Staughton and its people by Anthony Withers, Chapters 30 & 31

2000 Years of English History.

This book is about the remarkable people from this modest Huntingdonshire village who, over the past two millennia of England’s history, exercised power and influence both locally and on the national stage. The book gives a detailed biography of each of these characters, setting their lives in the wider context of English history from the time of the Romans to the present day.

An introduction to Chapters 30 and 31

It makes sense to combine these two chapters which deal with the lead up to World War 1 and the sacrifice made by the thirty-six volunteers from Staughton who never returned.

Feedback is welcome:
