Sing As We Go: Britain Between the Wars (Hardback)Simon Heffer (author)
Sing As We Go is an astonishingly ambitious overview of the political, social and cultural history of the country from 1919 to 1939.
It explores and explains the politics of the period, and puts such moments of national turmoil as the General Strike of 1926 and the Abdication Crisis of 1936 under the microscope. It offers pen portraits of the era's most significant figures. It traces the changing face of Britain as cars made their first mass appearance, the suburbs sprawled, and radio and cinema became the means of mass entertainment. And it probes the deep divisions that split the nation: between the haves and have-nots, between warring ideological factions, and between those who promoted accommodation with fascism in Europe and those who bitterly opposed it.

'The interwar period has not been written about in this way before, and Heffer's mammoth, magisterial book fills an important gap. It is an extraordinary achievement.' - Jane Ridley, Literary Review
