The Advertiser’s popular Rugby At War series, written by local historian Nigel Stanley, is now available online.

The 9,000-word work documents life in the town during the First World War and the sacrifices made by its people on and off the battlefield.

The work was published in an abbreviated form in four parts last month, but can now be found in full at http://www.rugbyadvertiser.co.uk/what-s-on/rugby-at-war or by clicking the ‘Rugby At War’ tab near the top of the front page of our website.
