The Village That Died For England

Tyneham is the archetypal 'lost village': a Dorset hamlet in a beautiful valley evacuated to make a training area for allied tanks during World War Two, and never returned to its inhabitants despite Churchill's pledge of restitution. It has lurked in the national imagination ever since: the symbol of a vanished England. A history of the military occupation of a Dorset village, The Village that Died for England is also a subtle parable about the politics of landscape and a masterpiece of English irony. First published in 1995 to considerable acclaim and controversy, this Faber edition has been revised to take into account material that has since come to light, and includes many additional illustrations.
