Product description


Dudley weaves a narrative through the individual stories of the largest training areas and spaces in southern England and Wales to provide an informed and highly readable account of military environmental history behind the frontline. This valuable contribution will be of direct interest to environmental historians, but will also appeal to geographers, planners and historians of the military as they seek to understand how military activities shape and affect wider activities, environments and landscapes. --Professor Rachel Woodward, Newcastle University, UK

Marianna Dudley's study uncovers the history of a landscape that has been largely neglected by historians: Britain's military sites. Taking into account broader social and environmental transformations, this book makes the surprising discovery that military activities are about conservation as well as destruction... Dudley's study is environmental history at its very best. --Christof Mauch, Director, Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, LMU Munich, Germany
