This is the story of the 30,490 men that left Dundee to fight in the First World War and of the people left at home.
In the summer of 1914 war broke out in Europe and what followed was a world war on an unprecedented scale. Dundee gave an astonishing 63% of its eligible men to the armed forces leaving barely a street, house or tenement in the city unaffected.
The Great War Dundee project recounts the First World War and its impact on Dundee, and invites you to contribute by sharing your own family stories.
