Father Stafford

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1763361&cjsku=1763361...
British novelist Anthony Hope is best remembered for his swashbuckling action-adventure novels, most of which include a side dish of budding romance. Father Stafford sets aside the sword play and daring last-minute escapes and focuses instead on the thrills and perils of a complicated love quadrangle. This one involves a betrothed couple, one of their female friends, and a young Anglican priest who is struggling to maintain his position of moral authority.

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95914517&cjsku=95914517...
Stafford in the Great War tells the fascinating story of a county town and its people between the catastrophic years of 1914-18 .The title was written as a companion volume to the author's earlier work, Stafford at War 1939-45, and adopts the same successful formula. The book examines the work of local men and women on the Home Front, before providing details of the towns contribution in every theatre of the war. Early chapters examine the role of Staffordians who served in the British Expeditionary Force, nicknamed The Contemptible Little Army by Kaiser Wilhelm II, and who took part in the Christmas Truce, 1914. The story of the Stafford Territorials of the Stafford Battery, the Staffordshire Yeomanry and the North and South Staffordshire Regiments is also explained, along with the fate of Kitchener's Volunteer Army.The events surrounding the service of a number of local men are recorded in some detail, along with the exploits of men who fought in all of the armed services and support units. Collectively, their stories help outline the course of the war.Staffordians won 120 gallantry awards during the conflict, and those that are not referred to in the main body of the text may be found in an appendix. Also listed are the names and service details of over 400 men whose names were omitted from the town's war memorial.
