The Cotswolds at War

Revised edition by June Lewis-Jones.2009. Price £14.99 Available from booksellers

June has updated the previous edition of her book with more pictures and information and a whole new chapter about the Polish Hostels that was not included before.

The book details how national policy was interpreted and how it influenced everyday village and rural life. This is the kind of interesting information about the day-to-day problems that ordinary people ‘suffered’ and is not often recorded elsewhere. It is an absorbing and fascinating read packed with much local detail. It makes us of the post-war generation realise just how lucky we are and how grateful we should be to those who fought for our country during the Second World War.
