|Half the British Army never left Britain during the Second World War and became, with the civilian population, the Home Front. In wartime the danger, courage, deprivation, exhaustion, fear, humour and, sometimes boredom that the population endured for six years is vividly brought to life through the voices of those who lived through them. This a truly authoritative, comprehensive and involving perspective of the war years at home. 560p. 24 pages of photos. s/b.
