Book DescriptionEdit

History with the nasty bits left in!

Can you imagine life without television, road signs and bananas? Or only having enough clothing coupons to buy a small pair of knickers? Not to mention the late-night bombing raids. These were just some of the hardships for people who stayed at home in World War Two - the blitzed Brits.

Want to know:

Dad's Army?

rude noise mask?

Read on for some spiffing slang, foul food facts and about rotten rationing, awful evacuation tales, and the terrible truth about London's bloodthirsty blackout murderer.

History has never been so BAD AND MEAN AND NASTY!

Person on front cover: Caricature of female factory worker in the blitz.
