Book Description

6 Sep 2010
In June 1940, following the BEF's scrambled evacuation from Dunkirk, the Second World War was brought home to Britain. As the Luftwaffe initiated their bombing campaigns and the threat of invasion grew daily, civilians were urged to play their part in the war effort, and take responsibility for their own survival. Many pamphlets and leaflets were issued with information and advice on a diverse range of subjects, from how to put on a gas mask, to how to build a bomb shelter and what to do in the event of an air raid, as Britain braced herself for a protracted conflict, literally on the front line, fighting alone. The literature drawn together for this evocative pocket-book captures the reality of civilian life during the Battle of Britain. It is a revealing and charming addition to Conway's trailblazing quarter-bound pocket-book series.

Found this quite useful for sources when studying the Home Front for GCSE History. It's not the most in-depth but it had some interesting and new information making it worthwhile as it is quite reasonably priced.

Very much a bit of a book or more accurately a book of bits. Still an entertaining read though.

This little book is fascinating to read. It is very informative. Not only does it have information on rationing, but it also includes a few menus. The book also includes info on evacuation, work, and shelters. It's a wonderful addition to my collection!
