The book is illustrated throughout with several small black and white photographs, and is a must read for anyone interested in the local history of this part of Devon, as well as people with a more particular interest in the role of the River Dart, Dartmouth and the surrounding villages during the Second World War.
The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs, and some light creasing along the edges and corners, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Please note there is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
