The military landscape from pre-history to the present. Nottinghamshire’s position at the very heart of England has given it important strategic significance. An endless succession of armies have criss-crossed the county, vital junctions have been defended by camps and castles and by the 2nd world war, the county had become home to a concentration of training camps and munitions plants. Much of this military activity has left its mark on the landscape, with many monuments now being of national importance. 192pp, illus.
