Pillboxes - Images of An Unfought Battle is a large format photo book by the author of this website.
“With 'PILLBOXES Images of an Unfought Battle', Ian Sanders has brought together an interesting collection of photographs which clearly demonstrate the wide range of their styles, the variety of their locations, and how they have come to occupy a natural place in
the landscape. From the urban railway embankments of Chiswick, Kew and Putney, through the beachscapes of North Yorkshire, to the rugged hills of The Peaks, pillboxes remain as significant reminders of the 1940 invasion scare. Ian's selection includes some well-known examples, and others which are more out-of-the-way. All are likely to stimulate interest generally, and to inform the casual visitor. This
collection adds to the general record of this episode in our country's history, now ever more necessary as the memories of those who witnessed it at first-hand are fading.”
