World War II was Britain's finest hour, despite rationing, the blitz and the evacuation of children to the countryside. Winston Churchill made rousing speeches and women took on the roles of their men in order to keep the country going.

The full horror of the conflict was seen with the atomic bombs dropped on Japan and the final outrage the concentration camps discovered in Europe. A must have resource for everyone.
