Cornish War & Peace
The Road to Victory and Beyond

Author: Viv Acton & Derek Carter  
Copyright: 1995 First Edition

Description: Glossy pictorial card covers, 168 pages, nice copy, the rear cover is creased, otherwise near fine.

This is the story of Cornwall both during WW2 but also after the war. Cornwall was forever changed by the war, Cornish people married outsiders and went to live all over the world, spreading their love of Cornwall to far flung places. Soldiers from many parts of the world came to Cornwall to train, and these men took home a love of this quaint Duchy. Many have continued to return over the years. This book is not just about the operations in Cornwall, the radar stations and top secret communications bases, the airfields, or the many troops stationed behind Cornish hedges; this is the story about how the war affected locals and life in Cornwall.

Market Jew is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in all of Cornwall, we now know it as Marazion. This book details the history of the church for the past 700 years in this community. Until the late 1800s, Marazion had no parish church, just a chapel, the parish church was at St. Hilary.
