'A nation that forgets its past has no future' - Winston Churchill. When Britain went to war everyone in the country was involved, whether they were in the military or civilians whose jobs were vital to the war effort. Additionally, every woman in the country, whether a mother, sister, grandmother or daughter was caught up in the conflict. They helped to maintain the everyday life for which Britain's military men were fighting. We all think we know what happened in Britain during the Second World War. There was the blackout, the Blitz, the shortages and the rationing. There was the Home Guard, the ARP men and women, the firefighters, and there were hundreds of thousands of women suddenly thrust into jobs previously thought only doable by men. But there was also football, fashion, entertainment, humour and even Christmas! This is the real, the everyday story of British men, women and children who fought a daily battle to keep the home fires burning When Britain Went To War. It's illustrated with many unseen photographs from the Archive of the "Daily Mirror".
