183 pp, large 8vo (9 11/16" H). Pictorial endpapers, b&w photographs, drawings, maps. "During the year 1940, a picturesque Kent village in the Downs behind Folkstone and Dover became virtually the epicentre of the greatest of all air conflicts: The Battle of Britain. The village is called Elham and this book is a chronicle of the events that took place there during that momentous year - in the skies above, in the streets, and in the surrounding countryside. Taking the diary of Mary Smith, the daughter of the village Postmaster - in which she briefly recorded the news headlines of the day and any local events that affected her - Dennis Knight has skilfully woven around her brief account a narrative which unfolds gradually to reveal the truly cataclysmic effect of The Battle of Britain on an innocent and peaceful community." Cigarette odour, minor browning at margin edges, very light browning to edges of textblock, small shallow bump to bottom fore-edge of both boards. Dust jacket has light browning on spine and at top edge, very minor edge wrinkling.
