It explores the need for supplies and shells for front line troops, focussing on the local King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment; the building of shell-making and filling factories on Lancaster and Morecambe; war work and changes it brought to the district; the explosions and remarkable acts of bravery that saved so many lives at the works and around the area.
