The Road To 1945

British Politics and the Second World War Revised Edition




The best and most comprehensive account of British politics immediately before, during, and immediately after the Second World War. GUARDIAN

The war years witnessed a radical shift in political power, expressed in Labour's decisive electoral victory victory in 1945. In his classic study - now revised - Paul Addison traces this sea-change back to the Thirties and powerfully recaptures the spirit of post-war reconstruction. 'It tells with wit, scholarship and imagination how the British people entered the Promised Land - or seemed to' OBSERVER 'This is a landmark in the writing of contemporary history and deserves wide acclaim' TLS
