More About This Title Britain at War


An arresting visual history of Britain's military involvement over the past 100 years and the impact of it on their homefront

The 20th century saw Britain participate in many armed conflicts, from World War I and II to the two Gulf Wars and encompassing wars in Korea, Suez, the Falklands, and the rest. This book focuses on the impact of these events in the streets and homes of Britain, as they were seen by ordinary people of the time. Made possible by a unique collection of photographs, this extraordinary vision of a nation in times of war is sometimes stirring, sometimes saddening, but entirely compelling.
