Description:

We Are At Warcontinues Simon Garfield's successful formula of interweaving five ordinary lives from the Mass-Observation archive begun withOur Hidden Lives. Of all the accounts written about the Second World War, none are more compelling than the personal diaries composed by those who lived through it. Beginning in the weeks before the war, and ending a year later with the Battle of Britain, the book will tell the story of the "phoney war" on the home front.
