READ Ü How We Lived Then A History of Everyday Life During the Second World War Although nearly 90% of the population of Great Britain remained civilians throughout the war or for a large part of it their story has so far largely gone untold In contrast with the thousands of books on military operations barely any have concerned themselves with. This book written in 1971 is filled with amazing first person accounts of life in Britain during World War II It s obviously been used by other authors as a source of material as many stories in this book can be found in newer books Every aspect of life during the war years is covered using the memories and diaries of people who lived through them Now that the war generation is passing into history books such as this one written when these people were still alive to be interviewed become invaluable This book is a treasure trove I highly recommend it for those interested in this time period
