Port Talbot's War Resistance
1914 - 1918
by Philip Adams
You may not know that Port Talbot and the Afan Valley were a hotbed of war resistance during the Great War. The author’s carefully-presented narrative and evidence of the imprisonment and torture of the resisters will be of interest and surprise to many readers, whether general public or historians. The book provides a fine commemoration of our debt to these oft misunderstood, but brave, men.
'Everyone from the area, my area, and well beyond, should know about these people and their struggles for peace. They can now tale their rightful place as part of the rich and revelatory history of this extraordinary place.'
