Gretna’s Secret War
Gordon L. Routledge
In 1915 the greatest munitions factory on Earth was built at Gretna. It stretched from Dornock through Eastriggs and Gretna to Longtown and emmployed over 30,000 people.
This is the story of that factory, its workers and the towns that were built to house them. It is also an account of Quintinshill, the worst railway disaster in British history.
