War and Progress : Britain, 1914-45 Paperback
by Peter Dewey
Part of the Longman Economic and Social History of Britain series
This is an account of how the daily lives of ordinary peoples were changed, profoundly and permanently, by these three momentous decades 1914-1945.
Often depicted in negative terms Peter Dewey finds a much more positive pattern in the wealth of evidence he lays before us.
His is a story of economic achievement, and the emergence of a new sense of social community in the nation, rather than a saga of disenchantment and decline.
