More About This Title A Very Dangerous Locality


This book examines the landscape archaeology of the Second World War in the front line of Britain's defenses against invasion. This location was the setting for important exercises in the lead-up to D-Day. This important new study considers how this area was transformed in the course of the conflict by synthesizing an extensive range of sources, including the physical remains of defenses and training, aerial photographs, the war diaries of military units on the coast, oral history and artistic representations. What emerges is the most detailed account to date of a coastal landscape during the Second World War.
