East Sussex has a long and interesting history. This fascinating new book presents for the first time a collection of the most dramatic 'events' in that long history, all, since the invention of the camera, captured by enterprising photographers. A picture speaks a thousand words - and never more so than when it records a moment in history that can never be repeated. Well within living memory, happenings such as the great freeze of 1962-3, or the great hurricane of 1987 will stir recollections for many readers, as will many stories and pictures from the Second World War. But, whatever the period or part of the county, there is a great deal to intrigue and inform everyone in East Sussex in this splendid addition to its published history ... the stories and the pictures of the events that made the headlines!
