During World War II, two figures symbolized the spirit of Britain. Winston Churchill was one and Vera Lynn was the second. The optimism, hope, realism and cheerful good humour of the British people was personified by the irrepressible energy of Vera Lynn who sang to the troops abroad and reached the hearts of the people on the home front. Mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, sons, daughters were all moved by the courage and unshakable optimism that she displayed during those terrible years. To mark the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, this book will remind readers of the fashions of the time, the films of the year, the songs that people were singing and whistling, headlines that people absorbed every day as they travelled to work on the tube - of how life was conducted on the home front.
