SECOND EDITION OF BRITAIN AT WAR 1939 to 1945 What was life like during the war? by James Lingard

The second edition of the book, published to commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War, gives a short insight into life in wartime Britain. It contains dramatic episodes and is told from the perspective of people who actually experienced the war, reflecting the emotions of the time; with an overview of the major campaigns, enlivened by quotations from Churchill’s speeches. The book will help later generations understand what life was like and evoke memories for those who were there. How did a family with a small child survive the air raids and rationing?

I am told that the chapters about the Home Front, depicting my life as a schoolboy, are particularly interesting and have made extracts from these chapters available free on Wattpad.
