The Southern Railway achieved remarkable transport feats after Dunkirk and suffered dreadfully in the Blitz, but its greatest wartime undertaking was the movement of supplies of the Normandy landing. All this and more is recounted in detail in this reprint of the 1946 official story of the Southern in war-time.
