From the rear side cover: Although not in the front line of the Second World War, Seaton and East Devon had its share of privation. It was home to many evacuees, some of whom stayed in the area after the war. Seaton itself was also the site of an internment camp, and hometo soldiers from many lands, some of whom were killed fighting for the British cause. Seaton families also lost sons to the war, many of them in heroic circumstances. It was a time when the community came together in a way which had not been seen before or since.

Ted Gosling has collected many fascinating and moving memories from local folk about their own experiences during this unique time. Through their words, and their own snapshots of the era, we can travel back in time to an area which flourished with 'Dunkirk Spirit' and made good friends with visiting soldiers from other lands.
