Throughout the Second World War Scotland's geographical position gave it great strategic importance - for importing war materiel and providing naval and air bases. Scottish women worked on the land and in the huge munitions factories; and the country was vital as both industrial powerhouse and food producer. It also absorbed many European refugees and underwent significant social, cultural and political changes. In this study, military historian Trevor Royle examines Scotland's wartime role from these many perspectives.
