Raleigh-ing to the Cause: The Bicycle in Wartime

Starting as early as 1817, Tony Hadland's story of the bicycle takes us to many places, including the USA, Europe and Vietnam, and spans more than 140 years. We will see how Raleigh became a massive maker of munitions, bringing huge financial rewards to captains of industry and revolutionising the lives of the many women who worked as machinists on the shop floor.
