But we also hear their story in a unique oral history of ordinary lives turned upside down: wedding nights spent in the Underground, couples falling in love who scarcely noticed the bombing and positively welcomed the blackout, and mums coping with wayward evacuees.
Listen and be taken back to a world in which housewives became riveters and bank clerks turned into firefighters - but where no-one could turn on a light or ever find a banana!

"Fascinating for someone born just after the war."
I wanted information about the life of ordinary people in the UK during WW2. This gave me exactly what I wanted to know. I also enjoyed the interviews.
"world war two."
when Churchill said "I have have to tell you now that this country is at war with Germany" must have struck fear into the British people what a. hero that man was he bombed the french fleet who were our ally but could see Hitler would take their fleet if France fried to fight.. his no nonsense approach and love for Britain forced him to make some difficult decisions. this audible book makes fascinating listening. it is well put together with comments from people who lived through the time.
