              Britain's Railways in Wartime
               

              Britain's Railways in Wartime (Hardback)

              By Lambert, Anthony

              In the long and absorbing history of Britain's railways and the men and women who have worked on them, the most challenging years were those of the two world wars. Neither of these wars could have been won without the railways. Transportation of everything that was grown, made or... mined, as well as soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians was largely the task of the railways. Yet the contribution of railways, and railway men and women in wartime has often been overlooked. This book pays tribute to the way the railways and their staff responded to the demand that they do more with fewer resources. They were called upon to cope with the extraordinary change in the character and volume of passenger and goods traffic, to endure dangerously long hours, and to overcome fear. Small wayside stations could be transformed into a frenzy of activity by the location of a camp or supply depot on its doorstep. Disruption through bomb damage could turn the shift of locomotive crew or guard into an indefinite wait for relief. The railway companies built many and various memorials to honour their fallen workers - these monuments, created and designed by high-calibre sculptors and architects, are included within the book's gazetteer. The book inevitably includes many statistics as well as dates, but it is impossible to comprehend the magnitude of the railway's contribution to the wars without them. The focus is on the railways of Britain, but sketches of the overseas theatres give some idea of the work of railway construction and operating companies, which were largely made up of railwaymen.

              Have you stopped to wonder what your life is all about, why youre here, and where youre going as your life is timing out? You can claim youre far too busy trying hard to reach your goal. Now is the time to stop, reflect, and think about your soul. We are constantly amazed and daz...zled by discoveries made in our world and universe. We marvel at what is being discovered, invented, and achieved by our fellow man. Very little, however, is related back to God. His existence and presence in our world is seldom acknowledged or thought about. It is easy to conclude that we are on our own and that there is no God. Still we marvel at the incredible glory, beauty, majesty, awesome power, and wonder of our observed world and universe. Could a god be possible? Yes. Yes, not only is it possible, but he is there for us and drawing us to him.
