Britain at War: Twentieth Century in Pictures
The 20th century saw Britain participate in many armed conflicts, from the First and Second World Wars to the two Gulf Wars and encompassing wars in Korea, Suez, the Falklands and the rest. This book focuses on the impact of these events in the streets and homes of Britain, as they were seen by ordinary people of the time. Made possible by a unique collection of photographs, this extraordinary vision of our nation in times of war is sometimes stirring, sometimes saddening, but entirely compelling.
