Books By Author Paul Addison
Listening to Britain, Paperback (May 2011)
From May to September 1940, during a period that saw some of the most dramatic events of the war - the evacuation from Dunkirk, and, the Battle of Britain - the Ministry of Information compiled daily reports on the morale of the nation for circulation within Whitehall. These reports provide insight into the unfolding drama of Britain at war.
Burning Blue, Paperback (July 2010)
The importance of the Battle of Britain cannot be exaggerated though inevitably in the succeeding years the accretion of myth has brought about many distortions. This title intends to reassess established themes while opening up fresh ones.
No Turning Back, Hardback (June 2010)View all books by Paul Addison
Paul Addison charts the vastly changing character of British society since the end of the Second World War, bringing to the subject the personal point of view of someone who has lived through it all and seen the Britain of his youth turn into a very different country, but who in the final reckoning still prefers the present to the past.
