Memories of an Ilkley cafe, a Burley Woodhead pub and the assembly of Lancaster bombers in Yeadon will all feature in a new book about the Second World War.

The book is described as a “compelling narrative, with eyewitness accounts from people who lived through those momentous times”.
As well as a raft of images, the book also features a wide range of subjects, including rationing, Land Army girls, the Home Guard, VE Day and VJ Day and National Service.
Yorkshire at War is published by Dalesman Books and priced £9.99 or £12.99 for a hardback copy.
