Dorking In Wartime by David Knight
David Knight captures the grim reality of wartime Dorking with his diary of events carefully complied from official records, Dorking Advertiser archives and personal accounts.
He uses a vast amount of material to link events covering the period from 1938 to 1946 vividly illustrating Dorking through the hostilities.
Although the town entered calmly enough into war conditions without panic or alarm, the harsh reality of those times soon became apparent when the skies filled with aircraft and trainloads of soldiers snatched from the beaches of Dunkirk passed through the town in June, 1940.
