legacy of British towns and cities. This book looks at the rich military legacy of 
Leeds. –   Highly Recommended

Leeds is another British town with a military legacy going back to the Romans. For 
generations the sons of Leeds have joined the colours and today the town hosts 
garrisons and military museums, including the famous Leeds Armoury Museum with 
its fine and unique collection.

As a Northern town in the forefront of the Industrial Revolution, Leeds has been 
home to a wide range of industries involved in the manufacture of munitions, steel, 
military equipment and supplies.

The author has provided a warm and enthusiastic overview of the military legacy of 
Leeds. As with the other books in this excellent series, there are many illustrations, 
including some in full colour and some very rare images.
