World-War-II-era map of the county of Kent, England, a coastal county over which much of the airborne Battle of Britain was fought. Region labeled with its major agricultural products. Inset of Canterbury Cathedral and cartouches commenting on the importance of British farms during the war and the assistance of civilians in the evacuation from Dunkirk. Lower left cartouche contains quote from Churchill: "The gratitude of every home in our Island, in our Empire and indeed throughout the world, except in the abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the world war by their prowess and by their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
