The author, a former mayor of Worcester, provides a study of the impact of World War II on village, town and city life within the County of Worcestershire. Chapters include the preparation for invasion, the county's contribution to the fighting services, life on the Home Front, and the role of industry and agriculture during this period. The many anecdotes and stories featured in the book cover such topics as the manufacture of lightweight motorcycles in Redditch for dropping by parachute to the front line, the development of radar at Malvern, the top secret code breakers of Pershore, and the "spy" uncovered at a well-known public school.
