This fascinating volume, the result of seventeen years of research by a Hillingdon historian, contains a comprehensive look at the Home Front in Ruislip, Northwood and Eastcote. What were the duties of the Special Constables? Where were wounded residents treated? What was health like during this time? Was housing affected by air-raids, or by overcrowding? Richly illustrated, and with full details of the lives, and deaths, of each of the local men who fell during the conflict, it commemorates the magnificent sacrifice and the unbreakable spirit of the residents of Hillingdon during one of the greatest conflicts the world has ever seen.

About Tanya Britton

Tanya Britton, a writer and local historian, was reference and local studies librarian with Hillingdon Libraries for many years. A researcher with a long-held interest in the history of the First World War, she realized during her time with the Library that very few local history volumes recorded what went on during the war. This volume aims to put that right.
