A superb book about the Forties. Something I have always been interested in. A great slice of life, fashions, people, food. So many things, you have to read it. Highly enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this great time of change, sadness, hope and fun.

This book is a great light read of the 1940's era and includes what the lifestyle was like during this time. It covers jobs, roles, social issues and the home. I gave it three stars as I expected it to cover more on the fashion and beauty styles however it only touched upon this area.

A very good overall view of the times, after the depressing war years, how people found a revival of spirits, looking forward.
I would recommend this to my school friends of the times, so lucky to still be touch with so many. good value for money with all the colourful pages.

Bought for grandparent as a trigger for memory stimulation, and general nostalgic interest, has a lot of adverts and fashion examples from the era.
