The British Home Front in the Second World War is a superb overview of life and the war effort in Britain from the outbreak of war in 1939, though its darkest hours of invasion threat and the Battle of Britain in 1940, to the year of Victory in 1945. All the major home front services from Air Raid Precautions, Women's Voluntary Service, Fire Service, Red Cross and St John Ambulance to the Home Guard, Women's Land Army and Observer Corps can all be found in this volume along with the story of families at home, evacuees, life on the ration, Make Do and Mend and women at work. Neil R. Storey and Fiona Kay paint an evocative picture of life in Britain during the war years that is profusely illustrated with many previously unpublished and rare photographs, complimented by a superb selection of documents and specially commissioned photographs of original memorabilia and badges. Drawing on over 25 years of painstaking research, collecting books, paperwork and memorabilia and interviews with those who were there, this book with its authoritative text and poignant photographs provides a great starting point for anyone approaching the subject for the first time.
