Book Description Alan Sutton Publishing Ltd., Stroud, England, 1992. First Edition. This is from the dustwrapper: " On 1st September 1939 evacuee children arrived at Cirencester, the first of 'a sorry procession' to leave the cities for the comparative safety of the Cotswolds. By the end of the war the figures had run into thousands and almost every district had been touched by the war.In this uniquely detailed account of the impact of the Second World War on the Cotswolds, June R. Lewis shows how national policy was interpreted at local level and how it influenced everyday village and rural life. Evacuees' letters describe their terror at seeing cows for the first time and their wonder at finding 'apples grow on trees' as well as the misery of being frightened and away from home. Villagers recount their own local parr-in the Invasion Plan and the precautions taken against the threat of enemy landings, bomb damage and injury to civilians: in August 1939 3,750 gas masks were issued in Cheltenham alone, and elaborate measures were taken to protect Tewkesbury Abbey and Gloucester Cathedral, where over 60 tons of sand were used to hg the tomb of Edward 11 and eight panels were removed from the great east window. As the war went on an increasing military presence was felt in the Cotswolds, as the RAF took over airfields in hitherto quiet rural districts, at Aston Down and South. Cerney among others, and US forces became integrated into local life.The book also describes the role of the Home Guard, and there are accounts of the turning over of factories, now camouflaged, such as Lister's at Dursley; to weapon production. Contemporary records show the use of Intelligence,claiming to be the first to use a pigeon with success in secret communication with an agent behind enemy lines. Finally, The Cotswolds at War reveals the changing use of land during the war years, including the 'Dig for Victory' campaign and the role of the Women's Land Army, and describes local efforts at fund-raising and entertainment.A vivid recreation of the Cotswolds during a time of war, the result of thorough research based on personal reminiscences and contemporary newspaper accounts, this absorbing book is amply illustrated by archive photographs. It will be of interest to all who presently live in or visit the Cotswolds, and will also be welcomed by historians for its closely detailed account of local communities during the Second WorId War." Well illustrated.237 pages, 7 X 10 inches. Very good book in a very good price clipped dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 004387
