Bombers and Mash: The Domestic Front, 1939-45

by RaynesMinns (Author)

Synopsis

'Women of Britain, Your Country Needs You!' Bombers and Mash tells the story of the Second World War on the domestic home front. It takes us from the kitchen to the nursery showing how women managed without almost everything from potato peelers, prams, food, fuel, transport, cosmetics to 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. Moving and fascinating, this is both an illustrated social history and a cookery book offering a remarkable picture of the deprivation and drama of the women's war.
