WW2 New Forest Discovered is a fascinating journey that captures the essence of an historic era, blending storytelling with previously unpublished photographs. Michael Hulse whose family has owned Breamore House for many generations, has written the Introduction. Breamore was requisitioned for wartime use and has an association with General George Patton. Local, WRNS veteran Marion Loveland has also contributed to the book by way of an endorsement. e author, John Leete, has included a helpful New Forest reference section and to set the storyline in the context of the county, there is a detailed Hampshire reference section as well. As the Forest’s pivotal role in helping to shape world history is unveiled, be prepared to be inspired, moved, and amazed by the untold stories of heroism, dedication and sacri ce that lingered beneath the forest canopy. WW2 New Forest Discovered is available from Waterstones and all good bookshops.
