The Second World War on the Home Front takes you through the many facets of wartime Britain: from the Phoney War to the devastation of the Blitz; from the Home Guard and the Land Girls to the invasion of the Channel Islands and from evacuation and rationing to code-breaking and the eventual victory celebrations. With over 200 illustrations and 25 rare, removable documents, it offers a unique perspective of the era.
Moreover it tells a wider story about warfare in the middle ages. Delving into the development and advances in weaponry, armour and tactics during this period and the impact this had on the battlefield, this is a richly detailed look at the world of medieval warfare.
Experience this momentous period in history by holding and examining personal and historic documents that bring extraordinary depth to the Second World War story.
This major work covers the whole six-year conflict that shattered and then re-shaped the world. From the German blitzkrieg against Poland in September 1939, to the surrender of Japan following the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki almost exactly six years later, each key event is presented precisely, spread by spread, with maps and photographs, biographical features and timelines.
