Great News.

Britain at War 1939 to 1945 what was life like during the war? by James Lingard (ISBN 9781434359346) is now available as an ebook for $3.95 from
The book, written by a leading lawyer, is dedicated to all those who suffered on the road to victory and was written primarily for readers curious about the life their parents and grandparents endured in wartime Britain. The education and outreach department of the Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum have found it ‘a useful reference for teachers preparing for WW2 Home Front studies and wanting a personal rather than political focus’

The book has received excellent reviews including:-
The Historical Association – a charity which supports teachers in primary and secondary education but also academics at all levels – ‘Members will be interested in Britain at War what was life like during the war? which brings alive the harsh realities of life in Britain during the war – life full of uncertainty and the danger of impending death. It also provides ‘a concise history of the salient campaigns in World War 2 ideal for anyone who lacks the time or inclination to study the larger works.’
UCL People (University College London) (March 2009) ‘A memoir of boyhood in Britain during World War II, this short but powerful book brings together personal reflections with the historical and political context. The author’s memories are interwoven with quotations from Churchill’s speeches and overviews of the major campaigns. ‘Britain at War’ is written from the standpoint of people directly involved, and all personal experiences are based on actual events.’
