Readers look at what life was like for civilians on the home front during the second world war. They will learn about rationing, internment, entertainment, and what it was like to live in cities that were being bombed by enemy aircraft. Fear of the Gestapo, living in occupied Europe, blackouts and air raids, child evacuees, and Nazi collaborators are also examined. Featuring accounts of eyewitnesses and those who lived through these extraordinary times, this volume is replete with gripping and authoritative analysis, evocative and moving personal narratives, and hard-hitting, compelling photographs.
