Exmouth At War : Life on the Home Front in Devon During World War II

In this book the author looks at his home town
of Exmouth during the war years, drawing on
years of collecting information and images, and
interviewing many people who lived through
the period and whose eye-witness accounts are
included here.
Exmouth's strategic importance at the mouth
of the River Exe made it a target for a number
of raids including a devastating attack from the
air in February 1943 in which 26 people were
killed and many wounded, with great
destruction of property.This and many other
aspects of wartime life in the town are covered,
including: The Home Guard; Children in
Wartime; The Exmouth Civil Defence; The
Role of Women in War ; and the American
Presence.
