Village That Died for England: The Strange Story of Tyneham (Paperback)Patrick Wright (author)
Paperback 512 Pages / Published: 04/11/2002

Tyneham is the archetypal "lost village": a Dorset hamlet in a beautiful valley, evacuated to make a training area during World War II and never returned to its inhabitants despite Churchill's pledge of restitution. It has lurked in the national imagination ever since; the symbol of a vanished England. This study is a subtle parable about the politics of landscape and a masterpiece of English irony. The Faber edition has been revised to take into account material that has come to light and includes many additional illustrations.
