Traditionally, ‘the right of the line’ is the vanguard, the place of honour and greatest danger in battle. In this history of the Royal Air Force during the European War of 1939-45, John Terraine shows how the RAF, which in 1939 was small and inadequate for the task it was called upon to perform had, by the end of the war, taken up its proper position. He describes the build-up to war, the early tests in France and at Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, the Battle of the Atlantic, the RAF in North Africa and the Mediterranean, the strategic air offensive over Germany and eventual victory in Europe. ‘His best book yet’ The Times ‘John Terraine is a fine historian … but he also believes that history should be exciting and readable’ The Listener

Imagination at War

The Second World War represents the most traumatic experience that British culture has undergone this century, and the story of that crisis has until now remained essentially unwritten and repressed. In Imagination at War Adam Piette analyses the fiction and poetry produced between 1939 and 1945 to uncover the dark imagination that has shaped postwar thinking, concealed behind the facade of public nostalgia for and glorification of the war. He finds broken minds drugged by the image of an embattled island; stories of ghostly private imaginations strangely remote from the world at war, yet pitilessly invaded by the lies bred by its propaganda. The war created a world of simulacra, screens, camouflage, and unreal enemies, while the Blitz turned the mind inwards at the same time as it emptied the self of private emotions. Looking closely at writers such as Alun Lewis, Evelyn Waugh, Alan Ross, and Elizabeth Bowen and at influential reviews such as Horizon, Piette captures the intellectual reaction to the war in Britain and the book acts as a corrective to those who feel that the 1939-1945 conflict takes second place to the First World War in terms of literary output and value.

A moving and revealing insight into the real experiences of children evacuated during WWII and the families they left behind On 1 September 1939 Operation Pied Piper bgan to place the children of Britain's industrial cities beyond the reach of the Luftwaffe. 1.5 million children, pregnant women and schoolteachers were evacuated in 3 days. A further 2 million children were evacuated privately; the largest mass evacuation of children in British history. Some children went abroad, others were sent to institutions, but the majority were billeted with foster families. Some were away for weeks or months, others for years. Homecoming was not always easy and a few described it as more difficult than going away in the first place. In When the Children Came Home Julie Summers tells us what happened when these children returned to their families. She looks at the different waves of British evacuation during WWII and explores how they coped both in the immediate aftermath of the war, and in later life. For some it was a wonderful experience that enriched their whole lives, for others it cast a long shadow, for a few it changed things for ever. Using interviews, written accounts and memoirs, When the Children Came Homeweaves together a collection of personal stories to create a warm and compelling portrait of wartime Britain from the children's perspective.
