Inferno 1940 Vernon Scott.

The story of the attack by the Luftwaffe on the Llanreath Oil Storage depot at Pembroke Dock in 1940, which led to one of the largest fires in UK history. Written by a legendary Pembrokeshire journalist, the late Vernon Scott, Inferno 1940 was originally published in 1980 by Vernon’s newspaper, the Western Telegraph. It is now republished by the Sunderland Trust and all proceeds go towards funding the Trust’s exciting projects. This book remains the definitive record of a trying chapter in Pembrokeshire and the UK’s wartime story.
