Cheshire The Secret War

About this book

In 1939 it was thought possible that Germany might launch an attack on the coastline of Cheshire.  Ron Freethy has talked to some of those who took part in covert operations and uses these first-hand accounts to tell the story of Cheshire's secret war.

As plans to repel any assault were developed, invasion committees were set up and a covert army was formed made up of local shipyard workers, school teachers and postmen. Underground hides were built and training was given in the servicing and firing of weapons including hand grenades.

This book is a proud record of service recalled by the men and women who lived through those terrible years, for all those who shared their experiences or are too young to remember.
