he county of Devon is said to have been the most militarily active county in England during the course of the Second World War. Devon At War can claim to be one of the few books that fully covers events on the Home Front during the war years, setting them against the ebb and flow of the conflict between the Allied and Axis forces. From Plymouth sailed Royal Navy warships that were to take part in epic sea battles. On Devon’s beaches were trained the men of the Allied armies who took part in the D-Day invasion of 6 June 1944, including tens of thousands of American troops who sailed from Devon’s ports.
