Synopsis

Synopsis

Osprey's study of the British home front during World War II (1939-1945). The population of Britain was mobilized to support the war effort on a scale unseen in any other Western democracy – or in Nazi Germany. They endured long working shifts, shortages of food and all other goods, and complete government control of their daily lives. Most men and women were conscripted or volunteered for additional tasks outside their formal working hours. Under the air raids that destroyed the centres of many towns and made about 2 million homeless, more than 60,000 civilians were killed and 86,000 seriously injured. This fascinating illustrated summary of wartime life, and the organizations that served on the Home front, is a striking record of endurance and sacrifice.

Praise

"I totally enjoyed reading this book, in fact I enjoyed it so much, I read it twice. If you think this is another one about “Dad’s Army” the Home Guard, you are way off base. Well written about the many unsung, and often unheard of services in Britain during World War Two." -Dave O'Meara, Armorama (September 2005)
