Defending Essex describes the various elements of the county&́#x80;™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.
