Format: Hardcover
This book traces the events of the Surrey town of Guildford during the Second World War. The authors Graham Collyer, editor of the Surrey Advertiser, and David Rose, the newspaper's chief sub-editor, have delved into the back copies of their paper which reported the borough's events between 1939-45.
Their research has recovered many wartime documents, records and old photographs which have not been published before.
Covered in the book are a number of incidents of bombs dropped onto the town, the Dunkirk evacuation trains, Dennis Brothers who manufactured armoured vehicles and tanks, defence structures such as pill boxes and anti-tank traps and a host of eye witness accounts and memories from those who lived through those dark days on the Home Front in Surrey's county town.
It will bring back many memories for those who experienced these times as well as giving younger readers an insight into how their forbears coped with the threat of a Nazi invasion, at any time, from across the Channel.
