"War on the Home Front" takes you through the many facets of wartime Britain: from the Phoney War to the devastation of the Blitz; from the Home Guard and the Land Girls to the invasion of the Channel Islands and from evacuation and rationing to code-breaking and the eventual victory celebrations. With over 200 illustrations, it offers a unique perspective of the era through the inclusion of more than 30 newly researched facsimile documents, including: a Luftwaffe bombing map of the Royal Albert and King George V Docks; a map showing Operation Sealion - Hitler's plan to invade England; a handwritten letter describing one of the first air raids of the Blitz; and, posters, drawings, telegrams and leaflets from the time.
