'Women of Britain, your country needs you!'

Bombers and Mashtells the story of the Second World War on the domestic front. It takes us from the kitchen to the nursery showing how women managed without almost everything from potato peelers, cosmetics and prams to food, fuel, transport - and men. These women coped with rationing, evacuation, separation from families, long hours of work in factories, hospitals and on the land. Through it all they kept the nation fed on ingeniously nutritious and economical meals - hundreds of the best, and some of the worst, are included here.

In print for over thirty years,Bombers and Mashis moving, fascinating and full of posters and images from the Second World War. It is both an illustrated social history and a cookery book offering a remarkable picture of the deprivation and drama of the women's war.
Raynes Minns was born in 1946 and grew up in Hampstead. The idea forBombers and Mashcame about when Raynes became intrigued by the idea of people cooking for a sugarless, meatless and fuelless world.
