ByJonathan Land Evans

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Continuing the author's series on Bermuda's modern history, this volume (now in a Second Edition including small emendations and additions) examines the busy and notably change-filled period 1939-1959, including the Second World War, new US naval and air bases, the Imperial Censorship station, the island's role in the Battle of the Atlantic and in economic and intelligence warfare against Nazi Germany, the history of local military forces, the proliferation of automobiles, the cedar tree blight, the post-war rebuilding of tourism, the Cold War, the flourishing of offshore business, and moves towards racial desegregation. The political scene, the advent of unions, improvements to the education system, changes in the retailing of food, activity in the arts, and many other subjects are also discussed. A more detailed history of Bermuda's role in the war is available separately (2013's 'A Colony at War'). Together with the other volumes, the series covers the years 1898-c.1980.
