Austerity Britain - Well Known to Me. Great Book,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Austerity Britain, 1945-1951 (Tales of a New Jerusalem) (Paperback)This is a heavyweight book, but a real champion in its class.
The research was a labour of love, it seems to me. Thoroughly engrossing read. Hard to put down. Accurate in every way, and I can vouch for that - having been 10 in 1945 and growing up in these hard but happy ensuing years.
I recommend this book to anybody who wants to look back (in happiness or otherwise) to this period. Or to those who want to find out what those austere days were all about. Well worth whatever you pay for this great read.
