During World War II, there seemed to be a gap between the reality and what could be called the "myth of the Blitz". The author shows that this myth was not purely propaganda but was a deep-rooted, common conception of pastoral England and the perfect gentleman. This book is the sequel to "The People's War". Angus Calder is the author of "Speak for Yourself: A Mass-Observation Anthology".
