Defending Hampshire : The Military Landscape from Prehistory to the Present
For 2000 years, Hampshire has been at the heart of the nation's defences against foreign invasion, as well as being heavily involved in civil conflict. Through Roman forts, medieval castles, fortified manors and moats, Victorian drill halls, military airfields, anti-invasion defences, radar sites, bunkers and nuclear attack monitoring posts, this book describes the structures put in place to defend Hampshire's inhabitants against enemies from both home and abroad.
