Description

The market town of Wallingford has a rich military history, from the impressive Norman castle used by the Queen in the Civil War to the central memorial commemorating those who died in the Second World War. This evocative book weaves together extracts from unpublished letters by men who fought in the Crimean, Boer and First World Wars and interviews with Second World War veterans to tell the full story of Wallingford at war. Also included are the army reforms of the 1920s and '30s and a look at the surrounding area. The story is brought up to date with an examination of what remains of our military heritage in Wallingford today. Well researched and illustrated with 150 absorbing photographs and other ephemera, this book will appeal to anyone who is interested in Wallingford's military history.show more
