Britain's War

A New World, 1942-1947




A groundbreaking, gripping history of Britain's role in the Second World War from a major new historian

The most terrible emergency in Britain's history, the Second World War required an unprecedented national effort.

Britain's War is a narrative of these epic events, an analysis of the myriad factors that shaped military success and failure, and an explanation of what the war tells us about the history of modern Britain. As compelling on the major military events as he is on the experience of ordinary people living through exceptional times, Todman suffuses his extraordinary book with a vivid sense of a struggle which left nobody unchanged - and explores why, despite terror, separation and deprivation, Britons were overwhelmingly willing to pay the price of victory.
