One of the best collections of personal accounts of the Home Guard in print. If you want to know what the Home Guard was like - buy this book.

This is the story of the Home Guard,told in dozens of reminiscences,from its inception in May 1940 as the Local Volunteer Reserves (LVD) with their red and black armbands and walking sticks used as pretend rifles became, at Churchills insistence, the Home Guard in July 1940.
The book relates the development of the Home Guard from using picks and shovels to a well equipped entity that would have given the Nazis what for.One of my abiding memories is the day in 1940 when I was twelve seeing my father parade on the Braid hills in Edinburgh with his walking stick over his shoulder.From that day I was inspired to know we would never be beaten.
There are no Scottish memories.
A remarkable book for those who remember the dark days.

The book was dispatched quickly and was well packaged. This book is on my husband's christmas wish list. As he is an historian, I know that he will find this interesting and informative. This is a book written about our history by people who were actually there at the time.
