Shetland's Old Norse Personal Names
Paul Moar
Now reprinted

Situated at 60 degrees north Shetland is often perceived as being little more than the remote northernmost part of the United Kingdom, but it is a historical fact that for centuries Shetland was actually at the geographical and political centre of a large Scandinavian empire which was made up of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Orkney, Faroe and Iceland. The personal names in this book offer a glimpse of that Scandinavian history and give a fascinating insight into those forgotten years.

Blockade 1914-1918 How Shetland won the War
Ian Tait
Although the title is intentionally whimsical, Shetland's contribution to the war was similar to every country, in that it was a source of manpower, but in a special way the islands (as opposed to people) played a far more crucial role in the war - of international strategic stature.

Safely Wounded - Shetland Letters from the First World War
Edited by Angus Johnson and Isabel Sinclair
This book of local correspondence by Shetland men and women from WW1 represents a tiny fraction of those sent. In those days, Shetland had two newspapers, and they both published letters from those involved in the war, which form the bulk of this publication. Others come from the Shetland Archives or from private hands.
