From the American Civil War onwards, railways have been an important aspect of war. While the first interest by the military in railways in Britain was intended primarily for internal security, the Boer War saw massive movement of men and their horses over the London and South Western Railway and through its port at Southampton.
So important were the railways that in the First World War, the state took control of the railways and then repeated this exercise under somewhat more controversial arrangements in the Second World War.
"Wartime on the Railways" is an account of the part played by Britain's railways during the Second World War.
