The Second World War changed the Britain and its people forever and as the gap of history widens, re-enactment plays an increasingly significant role in keeping alive the social and military experience of the war years and it helps us all to remember the sacrifice and determination of a generation that lived in extraordinary times. In A Re-enactor's War we explore what inspires, moves and motivates re-enactors of all ages and backgrounds, and their close relationships with the veterans and people they seek to honour. Reminiscences of the Home Front from evacuation to the Blitz and beyond, and new interviews with re-enactors are brought together to pay homage to a time that we must always remember. It was our nation's darkest hour, but also a time when amidst the turmoil and upheaval, the British people fought back with their inimitable Home Front spirit that continues to inspire today. This book pays tribute not only to the bravery of the war generation, but also to their camaraderie and their love of life. Mixing previously unpublished original period images with a selection of stunning colour images depicting the breadth of Second World War Home Front re-enactment, the reader will be fascinated by the characters, their individual stories, amazing experiences and their dedication to preserving the past. This truly is history brought to life!
