Review by Tony Parsons of Britain at War 1939 to 1945

January 7, 2014

A new five star review of Britain at War 1939 to 1945 has been added.
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 1939 to 1945 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.’

This review is from: Britain at War 1939 to 1945: What was life like during the war? (Paperback)
This is a factual but interesting book of the lives of people who lived through WWII. It gives the stories of peoples lives, interspersed with the great speeches of such great men as Winston Churchill. It is enjoyable as a read in itself, but even more so for the memories it evokes for those who lived in those times. It provides a valuable insight into those times for us who were born in the 1950s, and onwards and without such a book, it is impossible for us to understand what life was like then. Death was almost always imminent from the bombing, food was short, hunger was not unusual, but a sort of national spirit emerged that is no longer present today.

This review is from: Britain at War 1939 to 1945: What was life like during the war? (Paperback)
A glimpses of WWII (Battle of Britain) & the horrors Britain had to endure during WWII. Also how it affected lots of other nations worldwide; human lives, mental/medical, financial (cost of war), unemployment, poverty, politics/reasons why the war, personal individual/family perspectives…an endless list. In 2007, Britain had paid off their debt to the US from WWII.

True/not account of the war awesome story content, great summary of events, a few key characters; Churchill, General Eisenhower, President Roosevelt, General De Gaulle, Rommel, Hitler, General Alexander, General Montgomery, Kesselring, General Stilwell… (use 1st names also), & always stuff I did not know.

My father I’m quite sure suffered from PTSD, the horrors of the Army coming/taking apart the concentration camps. He was not a pleasant man to live with. My biological mother he met in England left when I was 4, I never knew her/family. 1 uncle Navy, 1 uncle A/F, my son A/F.

I am retired Army, a history buff, as well as my emphasis is on wars. This short story deserves 5 stars.

Thank you for the free book (short story)
