Somerset's contribution to the Second World War was extremely varied.

Wherever you go in the county, you are never far away from a reminder of those wartime years.

Weston-super-Mare and Bath experienced the worst of the bombing, but there are many other stories to tell.

In this book, old images show the county at war and full-colour modern images demonstrate what remains today of Somerset's wartime landscape.

In Somerset at War Through Time, we see coastal defences at places like Brean Down and Steep Holm, and the airfields at Weston Zoyland and Merryfield.

We learn how the town of Glastonbury prepared itself to be occupied by enemy troops, why the Taunton area was crucial to the defence of the West Country, how naval fighter pilots were trained at Yeovilton, and visit Pilton to learn about the Women's Land Army.
