Defending Essex describes the various elements of the county's military heritage and places them in their historical, archaeological, and social context. From the castles and strong houses of the medieval and Tudor monarchs and statesmen to the pseudo-fortresses of the Victorian militia and rifle volunteers; the airfields of the anti-Zeppelin fighters of the Royal Flying Corps and the Battle of Britain bases of the RAF to the pillbox defences against invasion of 1940 and the anti-nuclear defences of the Cold War, this book tells the story of Essex's military history and beyond.
