Petersfield At War, Paperback / softback Book

Petersfield At War Paperback / softback

Description

The small Hampshire town of Petersfield saw little direct conflict during the Second World War, yet its story reflects all the anxieties and concerns of Britain's inhabitants during that period: food shortages, evacuees, blackout restrictions, family losses - and the characteristically phlegmatic approach to these problems by all concerned.

David Jeffery's research has uncovered some remarkable stories of individuals caught up in these world-changing events, and a series of interviews with over fifty long-time residents vividly brings back to life the everyday realities and intense atmosphere of these troubled times.

This evocative record of the effect of the war will serve as a memorial to an exceptional period in Petersfield's history.
