Release date: June 2019
When War came to Wymondham 1939-45 enables us to look back to the lives of ordinary people in the small town of Wymondham during the Second World War. The influx of evacuees, of those that were bombed out of their homes in Norwich, the land girls who came to maintain the food supply, and most of all, American servicemen, whether it be airmen of the 389th and 452nd Bomb Groups or those at the American Army Hospital (now Wymondham College) who put pressure on this Norfolk community. How the town coped is told through first hand accounts and interviews with residents who lived through those momentous years.
