Summary
"In September 1939, on the outbreak of the Second World War, over three million people were evacuated. Operation Pied Piper was the largest ever transportation of people across Britain and the majority of those moved to the safety of the countryside were children. Social historian Gillian Mawson has spent years collecting the stories of former evacuees and this book includes the memories and photographs of over 100, in their own words. These accounts, almost all previously unpublished, reveal what it was like to settle into a new home with strangers. Some found lasting lasting love and friendship, whilst others endured ill treatment. A fascinating insight into the realities of wartime life and a valuable record of a unique moment in British history"--Jacket
