Yorkshire The Secret War 1939-1945

Product Description

From first-hand accounts, Ron Freethy pieces together the story of Yorkshire's secret contributions to the war effort. These included Invasion diversionary plans; starfish dewy installations; secret bunkers; and the development of RADAR, Torpedo boats and new explosives. Those involved included the Home Guard, the Royal Observer Corps, the Coastguard Units and Lighthouse Keepers.

In Sheffield experiments were carried out on re-enforcing steel and glass for tanks and armoured cars and in Hull German fishing trawlers, bought before the war, were secretly converted to Minesweepers.

The 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 to young to remember.
