Britain in the Second World War

The Second World War was the defining episode for twentieth-century history and indeed for much of the war Britain was by far the most important nation of the Allies. This book presents a new and vivid survey of politics, society, culture and military strategy between 1939 and 1945. Structured around themes such as ‘Wartime Media’, and ‘Britain and its Allies’, the book covers the major historical debates of these areas, including Britain’s commitment to remain in the conflict until unconditional surrender and the effect of war on the status of women.

Britain in the Second World War includes discussion of:
  • politics, including Churchill’s wartime strategy and the 1945 election
  • the economy
  • ‘selling’ the war to the public
  • the influence of war on British society
Britain in the Second World War is a compact history of wartime Britain which not only provides a succinct narrative of events, but also highlights contemporary historical debate.
