In the Summer of 1940, the white cliffs of Dover lay within sight of Hitler’s Army. Kent was now at the vanguard of Britain’s defences.
For the next five years, the county would be shelled by long-range guns and bombed both day and night. More than 20,000 civilians were killed and injured – but the people of Kent remained defiant.
From the Battle of Britain to the terror of the V-weapons, this is the story of England’s front-line county.
