Dee Gordon's new book is the unique and fascinating result of many conversations with people about the lives of their families in Southend during the First and Second World War.
Vivid memories are recounted, including interviews with former Land Army girls, evacuees, and members of the Home Guard.
As well as recollections of life on the Home Front, archive reports and letters touch upon the horror of the conflict at the Front. Illustrated with over 90 archive photographs and documents, Southend at War draws on the first-hand accounts of those who were present during those dangerous years and is sure to appeal to everyone interested in the history of Southend.
