DESCRIPTION:  A new addition to the popular 'Your Towns & Cities in 
World War Two'.  Merseyside played a unique part in WWII and was a  major 
target for German aircraft, but displayed the same Spirit of the Blitz 
determination to carry on. -  Recommended

The author has provided a detailed review of Merseyside's part in WWII and his able text is fully 
supported by a wealth of illustration through the body of text. Naturally, every British town 
remembers with pride its unique part in WWII because the whole country was within range of 
German aircraft and fully mobilized to support the war effort, but Merseyside was one of those towns 
that was heavily attacked and provided the essential port facilities for supply convoys from North 
America, feeding the country and the war production.

Merseyside included both the important port facilities and support industry together with the Western 
Approaches Command Centre. It also had offshore prefabricated forts to provide anti-aircraft cover 
for convoys on their final leg into the port facilities with their essential cargoes.

As with all British cities, the civilian and military populations worked together but life also when on 
outside the war effort. This has been covered as part of a total review for the span of the war and the 
immediate aftermath as emergency housing was built to replace that destroyed by German bombing 
and to cater for the returning military personnel as they were demobilized.

A fascinating and comprehensive account.
