AUTHOR: Neil R Storey
Norfolk in the Second World War
Norfolk in the Second World War
  • Description

The Second World War had a profound and unprecedented effect on the people of Norfolk. During that conflict thousands of local men and women ‘did their bit’ in the armed forces while many of those they left behind were part of a most remarkable endeavour. These men and women on the Home Front, often facing extreme danger, took part in vast array of occupations, and enlisted in volunteer and auxiliary forces as part of the war effort.

This book is a compelling record of their stories, much of it in their own words, and from documents, books, newspapers and periodicals written or published during the war or in its immediate aftermath.

As well as being fascinating in its own right, the book will prove to be a useful starting point or reference work for researchers over the years to come, and some small tribute to all those from the county of Norfolk who gave so much during the conflict.

Profusely illustrated with almost 250 photographs and documents, many previously unseen, taken from the unique and nationally-respected archive assembled by the author, this important book will appeal to all those with an interest in Norfolk’s military past and in family history.

Neil Storey is a born and bred Norfolk man. A graduate of the University of East Anglia and one of the foremost historians of the county specialising in social and military history themes, he has published over 25 books and countless articles for magazines and journals.

Undoubtedly a man blessed with a ready wit and ebullient character he is a familiar voice on BBC local radio; he has also acted as a consultant and featured on a number of television documentaries and dramas. Neil is in constant demand by both academic and social audiences for his lectures, talks and legendary after-dinner speeches.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 1 84114 990 5, hardback, 297x210mm, 160 pages. Published October 2010.
