- Bradford-born, JB Priestley was a man whose life virtually spanned the 20th Century, and a writer who was one of England’s best-loved literary figures. 'Priestley's Wars' traces a personal odyssey through his writings on war - as an enthusiastic volunteer in the First World War, and then a post-war transformation that would ultimately make Priestley one of the most influential voices for peace and disarmament.
