Overview
-

In June 1940 Britain's front-line against the German armies was the coast of Kent and Sussex. Across the Channel Hitler's all-conquering forces gathered, preparing for invasion, as the Home Forces struggled desperately to recover from the disaster and miracle of Dunkirk. Occupation of these islands was nearer than for almost nine hundred years. Kent and Sussex 1940, tells the story of the Kent and Sussex communities that found themselves in the front-line, placing their experience within the context of huge historic events and showing what invasion and occupation would have been like.
