Rent A Cottage In Scotland

Wednesday, December 20, 2006


This book really gives an insight into how life must have been for Dunoon, a small Scottish community suddenly invaded by hundreds of American servicemen and their families, and how it must have been for the Americans coming to a place where they had to learn how to make coal fires to keep warm and negotiate narrow streets and lanes with their big American cars. Life for the folks of Dunoon changed dramatically when the submarine base came, and changed again when the base was closed some 30 years later. The American Years: Dunoon & the US Navy.
