"...provides a unique comparison between war-time conditions in Britain, France and Germany...The impact of war on the civil and domestic life of the nations involved was nothing short of revolutionary and the author paints an absorbing and unforgettable picture of the unheard of changes that came to pass: censorship and propaganda, rationing and air-raids, violent fluctuations in morale as bellicosity, defeatism and pacifism ebbed and flowed.
