Wartime Scrapbook: the Home Front 1939-1945, Hardback Book

Wartime Scrapbook: the Home Front 1939-1945 Hardback

Hardback

Description

With the sixtieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War looming, this new edition of the Wartime Scrapbook revives memories of this evocative time in Britain's history.

Life on the home front revolved around rationing, blackouts, and air raid precautions, bringing out that British spirit - humour coupled with making-do and determination.

Poster propaganda kept the population digging for victory during the years of the Home Guard, Women's Land Army and austerity with dried eggs.

Drawn from Robert Opie's unrivalled collection, this new edition of The Wartime Scrapbook profusely illustrates a unique period in history - the song sheets, magazine covers, comic postcards, fashion and food, games, propaganda posters and a wealth of wartime ephemera whose very survival is remarkable.
