From Our Editors

North Americans often hear a great deal about the pivotal role the United States and Canada played in World War II, but we rarely get a glimpse of the conflict through the eyes of Britain. Mark Donnelly remedies that with Britain in the Second World War, an overview of how the battle affected the nation’s culture, economics, politics, media and gender roles. This is an ideal resource that will complement studies in modern European history.
