This book is about Cambridge and the villages nearby during the Second World War. It is not a history of that war, for many people far more qualified than I am have written volumes, of various lengths and for various readers, about the causes, events and effects of that terrible conflict. This is really a book about people, the people of Cambridgeshire, and about the way their lives were changed during the years 1939 to 1945. You will read how they prepared for that war, how they lived through it and coped with the problems it brought, and how they, with millions of others. rejoiced when it was all over. Much of the material has been gathered from the wartime editions of the Cambridge Daily News and the Cambridge Independent Press, but it also contains contributions from half-a-dozen people who tell us in a much more personal way what the war really meant to them.
