Description

Compiled by the historical adviser to the TV series "The 1940s House", this is an engagingly written social chronicle of wartime civilian life in England from September 1939 to August 1945 - from the grandeurs of the Blitz to the miseries of dried egg powder - with numerous individual testimonies.
