Clavering at War, An Essex Village 1939-1945, by Jacqueline Cooper
Book published by the author in 2012, 192 pages. Paperback (N7338)
From the rear side cover: Clavering at War recounts the experiences of the people of a village in north-west Essex during ihe Second World War. Colourful strands - taken from recorded memory, local newspaper stories, parish magazine articles, diaries and other documentary material - are woven into the inspirational writings of the village's wartime vicar. This unusual combination brings the Home Front to life, with written and oral sources on events side by side with observations by the man who gave moral leadership to the village at the time. More than 100 men and women from Clavering served with the King's Forces, and many of their experiences, so very different from their earlier lives, are also included. Fully indexed and illustrated with more than 200 images, this book is both a testimony and a tribute to those who 'did their bit' for the community and the country in those extraordinary times from 1939 to 1945...
