East & West Cowes in the Second World War: Including Gurnard, Northwood and Whippingham by Mark Tetley

The Isle of Wight and particularly the area around the industrial areas along the Medina River, became strategically important during the Second World War. Here is where ships and aircraft were built and the men and women who lived in the Cowes area are remembered through their words and experiences of the conflict. From the start of hostilities through the air-raids and shortages to D-Day and finally peace, local voices tell the story.
