Island heroes : the military history of the Hebrides( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost every township throughout the Islands has its war memorial inscribed with scores of names, but how much do we really know about the role of the Hebrides and her people in wartime? The Islands Book Trust held a three-day conference to address exactly this question. 'Island Heroes - The Hebrides and UK Military History' took place in the Isle of Lewis, where a range of excellent speakers discussed the disproportionate contribution and sacrifice made by islanders to UK military campaigns over at least the last 250 years and the role of the Hebrides during World War Two. This book brings together the various contributions - looking at warfare from a uniquely island perspective.-Publisher description

The village names of Lewis by Magne Oftedal( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new edition of the classic work on the island's Old Norse place-name heritage. It is now over 50 years since Magne Oftedal's classic article on 'The Village Names of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides' was published in Norsk Tidsskrift for Sprogvidenskap, Volume 17 (Oslo, 1954). It was an important by-product of research carried out by Oftedal into the Gaelic dialect of the Leurbost district of Lewis (published in 1956), where he lived from 1950 to 1951. This booklet consists of a facsimile copy of the original article, together with the most interesting map which accompanied it."--Publisher's description
