Devon was one of the most militarily active counties in the Second World War. The home of the great naval base at Plymouth and target for German bombs, including 'Baedeker raids' on Exeter, it was also the training ground for D-Day, which brought thousands of American soldiers to south coast towns and villages. Illustrated with archive photographs, maps and ephemera, this book tells the story of Devon's war through contemporary reports, recently declassified documents and eyewitness accounts.
