This edition of "The Dorking Review" contains all of the good things that the discerning reader would expect from a book, including a lot of words--some of which are arranged into coherent sentences--a few pictures, and a free DNA sample from someone who once visited Ipswich.

Britain is under attack, and winning at Dorking is the only way the empire can be saved It is the late nineteenth century, and a country much like Germany is on the move in Europe. It has already beaten its rivals on the continent and mobilized to the Netherlands, provoking the fear of British citizens. Then the nation strikes. Its powerful weapons destroy the Royal Navy, and invasion cannot be far behind. Written as a hypothetical exercise to raise awareness among average British citizens about the potential danger that a resurgent Germany could pose, The Battle of Dorking earned its place in literary history as the forerunner to the invasion-novel genre, predating The War of the Worlds by almost twenty years. The novel’s drama, which culminates in a fight that will change the course of history forever, thrilled audiences when it was originally released as a serial, and it maintains its power today. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Dorking in the Great War

Author: Kathryn Atherton

Publisher: Pen and Sword

ISBN: 1473854407

Category: History

Page: 160

From Zeppelin raids to housing refugees and evacuees or from men volunteering to fight or women working in the local Gunpowder factory, Dorking in the Great War looks at how the experience of war impacted on the town, from the initial enthusiasm for sorting out the German Kaiser in time for Christmas 1914, to the gradual realization of the enormity of human sacrifice the families of Dorking were committed to as the war stretched out over the next four years. ??The Great War affected everyone. At home there were wounded soldiers in military hospitals, refugees from Belgium and later on German prisoners of war. There were food and fuel shortages and disruption to schooling. The role of women changed dramatically and they undertook a variety of work undreamed of in peacetime. Meanwhile, men serving in the armed forces were scattered far and wide. Extracts from contemporary letters reveal their heroism and give insights into what it was like under battle conditions.

Excerpt from Englands Ende in der Schlacht bei Dorking: Erinnerungen Eines Alten Britten im Nächsten Jahrhundert; Eine Studie aus dem Englischen Übertragen Ihr Enkel wollt, dass ich euch erzählen soll, wie es denn zugegangen ist, dass vor nun bald funfzig Jahren dieses Elend über uns hereinbrach. Nun, ich habe freilich selbst mein hartes Theil mit davon erlebt; aber wahrlich, keine Arbeit werd mir noch so sauer, als zurückzudenken an die traurigen Zeiten an das trostlose Ende von alt-englands Weltmacht. Doch es mag auch gut sein, dass ihr's hört und leset; und wenn ihr jetzt von hier fortzieht in die Ferne, mag es euch eine Lehre sein, da wo ihr euch eu1'e neue Heimath gründen möget. Für uns kam diese Lehre nur zu Spät; und doch waren auch wir genug gewarnt, wenn wir nur hätten sehen und hören wollen. Die Gefahr kam uns nicht einmal eigentlich unerwartet: Sie brach plötzlich über uns herein, das ist wohl wahr; doch ihre Verboten hatten lange deutlich uns vor Augen gestanden; wir aber waren blind mit efi'nen Augen. Niemandem anders als uns selbst haben wir diese Schmach zuzuschreiben, in der gross-britannien zu Grund ging.
