Norfolk's military heritage dates back to the earliest times in this country's history from the Iron Age and the Iceni stronghold and Boudica's rebellion against Roman occupation to its frontline role with its numerous airbases in World War 2 and the Cold War. The Roman's left their mark with fortifications, garrisons and short forts and the county was shaped by Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasion, and subsequent Norman occupation, whose castles still stand dominant in the county. The county was the scene of uprisings and rebellions, including the Peasants Revolt and Kett's Rebellion and Civil War conflicts. Norfolk volunteers, local militias and Yeomanry fought in the Napoleonic Wars and the county is famed for its admirals of the day, not least Nelson. The Norfolk Regiment has a proud history, including Victoria Cross awards and the county played a vital part in the two World Wars, not least suffering direct attack from German battleships, Zeppelin air raids and the Baedeker Blitz. Norfolk's Military Heritage looks at the military legacy of this county on land, by air and at sea, not only its heritage but the stories of those involved in warfare in Norfolk over the ages, whether at home or abroad. All those wishing to know more about the military heritage of Norfolk will find this book of interest.
