Starting in the late 1930s, in this glorious hardback edition, the reader is introduced to some of the events that culminated in Great Britain’s participation in the greatest conflict in human history.

Early chapters look at Air Raid Precautions and Operation Pied Piper in September 1939. The Home Front then covers a wide range of topics including rationing, feeding the nation, entertainment, and sport.

There are then chapters on the Home Guard, industry and the Blitz. The final chapter, Victory and Beyond, tells something of how the war would cast its long shadow into the 1950s.
