Synopsis

They Also Serve Who Stand and Wait A History of Pheasey Farms U.S. Army Replacement Depot, Sub Depot of the 10th Replacement Depot. 1942/1945 by Martin Collins

'They Also Serve Who Stand And Wait' tells the story of the U.S. Replacement Depot at Pheasey Farms Estate in Great Barr, Birmingham during World War II. Part of the half-built housing estate was requisitioned by the British forces at the outbreak of the war and in 1942 the first group of American soldiers moved in. The book is a fascinating insight into the day to day activity on the base, with many moving accounts from those involved, and also deals with the impact that the American soldiers had on the surrounding area of Walsall and Birmingham.
