An Environmental History of the UK Defence Estate: 1945 to the Present

Research output: Book/ReportAuthored book

Abstract

This book brings to attention the history of places that have traditionally remained under-the-radar in discussions of war and the environment, through site based studies of 5 training areas in Southwest England and Wales. At these sites, the big events of the twentieth century are written into landscapes that absorb their impact and reflect change in intriguing ways. Here, however, environment is more than a canvas on which historical forces play out; it has an agency of its own, as the depiction of the surprising nature and robust habitats of the training areas recognises.
