Blackmore Park in World War Two tells the history of the two hospital sites built at Blackmore Park in 1943 and used by American hospital units until September 1945. The two sites were first occupied by the 19th and 65th General Hospitals. The 19th was replaced in May 1944 by the 93rd General Hospital and the 65th was replaced first by the 90th General Hospital in March 1944 and then by the 155th General Hospital in July of that year. The 19th and 90th moved their operations to the continent on leaving Malvern and set up hospitals in France.

This book tells of the day to day activities on the base using accounts and previously unpublished photos from those involved. It touches on the work of the other three American hospital sites in the area and it also looks at the impact that the occupants of these camps, both patients and medical staff, had on the surrounding area of Worcestershire through the memories of those that were there at the time.
