The county of Carmarthenshire has an impressive military history and heritage which stretches back into the Iron Age. Following Celtic settlement, this part of South West Wales witnessed Roman occupation, Viking raids and Norman and English invasion. Remains of fortifications can be seen in Carmarthenshire from Iron Age hillforts and Roman forts to mediaeval castles and Civil War defences. The Second World War and the Cold War have also left relics. The military heritage also encompasses prisoner of war camps and military hospitals, sons and daughters who distinguished themselves militarily, local battalions, Pembrey’s munitions factories which were the largest in Wales, and memorials to conflicts.

This book will be of interest to all those who would like to know more about Carmarthenshire’s remarkable military history.
