from back cover:

In January 1944 eight villages and several thousand acres of prime agricultural land in South Devon were evacuated to allow American troops to train for the seaborne invasion of Europe.

When this book was published in 1973 it was the first account of what was a most traumatic experience for the people of the South Hams who were so summarily removed - together with all their belongings and their livestock - from their homes. Out of print for several years it is now re-issued to mark the 50th anniversary of the evacuation.
