Located three miles east of Edinburgh, Portobello is best known as a popular seaside resort. Less well known is its role in the First World War, when thousands of British troops were billeted there. Illustrated with period photographs and including heartfelt personal letters and diaries, this book documents the effect of the war on the town, both on the home front and in terms of the local residents who fought and died in the conflict.
