Welcome to the Education and Learning pages of the Eighth in the East project. Our aim was to provide an in depth local history resource that through the story of the 8th USAAF explores the impact of war on people living, working and serving in East Anglia during WW2.
The Learning Resource and Website are not designed to address the whole complex topic of WW2 but instead aim to enliven and enrich learning about WW2 with local connections, familiar places and personal narratives that are not available in general text books or other WW2 related teaching resources.
