From the rear side cover: This book provides a vivid account of how local people endured struggle and sacrifice in those vital years from the beginning of 1942 to the end of 1943. In a time which saw the turning of the tide, they played their part in the making of history, and this is their story....

From husbands, sons and fathers who went off to war there are dramatic personal accounts of gallantry on the battlefields of El Alamein and elsewhere, of heroism by men who faced the terrors of the war at sea and in the air, of defiance and survival from some of the many who bacame prisoners of war. The book also portrays life on the home front, as eye witnesses tell of the day Goole was bombed, and of the time when two bombers collided above the town.....

Illustrated throughout with lots of black and white photographs, this book will delight anyone who has grown up or lived in Goole, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Yorkshire and beyond....
