From the rear side cover: Pembroke shire Under Fire is a remarkable record of a trying time in this county's colourful history - when Pembroke shire found itself in the 'front line' from enemy air attacks during the Second World War. That this story was written by a journalist who was 'there', and who experienced at first hand some of the heaviest air raids, makes it all the more valuables as an historic document as the years go by, and World War II recedes further into history.
