This review is from: The People's War: Britain 1939-1945: Britain, 1939-45 (Paperback)
Most history is written using the documents of the rich and powerful as the source. The result is a dearth of information about the ordinary people of the day. This fine work sets out to be, and succeeds in being,a wonderful excepion to the rule. The smell of the chimney smoke and damp walls of Britain before, during and immediately after the war seeps from its pages. Excellent.
