BRITAIN IN WW2


 

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

Two new reviews of the SECOND EDITION OF BRITAIN AT WAR 1939 to 1945 What was life like during the war? by James Lingard have been published. One awarded 4 stars by a lady from Manchester who wrote:

Second edition

Second edition

‘This book is part war history, part social commentary and part memoir. In chronological order it delves into life in Britain during WWII. I don’t like reading lots of facts and figures and don’t have an interest in aircraft and war, but I do have an interest in the life of people in all kinds of situations so I skimmed the history and focused in on the story of a young boy growing up in war torn England. It is well written in this genre and my favourite part was the introductory pages which gave a brief history of his grandfather’s life. As a follow up I would encourage My Lingard to hone in on his grandfather and tell his story of a chapel going, lay preaching, trade unionist balancing social justice with holiness.’

The other a bad review from a lady in Vienna – perhaps she did not like my assertion that Hitler made serious mistakes!

Readers will have their own views but please let me know what they are.
