The Guns of the North-East

A graphic account of the defence of Hartlepool, Whitby and Scarborough against German seaborne raiders in 1914 and a detailed history of the coastal defences that confronted the German navy. For the first time the author relates the wider story of the batteries of the Northeast of England and of the gunners who manned them in times of war and peace. His study covers all the coastal batteries from Northumberland and the Tyne, south through Wearside and Durham, Hartlepool and the Tees, to North Yorkshire and the Humber. Information on all the sites of the gun batteries along the coast is included. Published in association with the Heugh Battery Restoriation Trust.
