Description - Living on the Home Front by Megan Westley

During the Second World War millions of men left their homes and families to fight for their country. Meanwhile, those waving a tearful goodbye had to carry on. They dug their allotments, measured out their bath water, and presented their ration coupons for food and clothing. Through bombings and blackouts, the people of Britain did whatever they could to aid the war effort. In this detailed and well researched book, we learn what life was really like on the Home Front during the Second World War. Megan Westley enhances her account with her own experiences of 'living on the Home Front'. Over the last year, she has thrown herself into wartime cooking and rationing, espoused the mottos 'Dig for Victory' and 'make do and mend', sacrificed television, and even recreated an air raid. As well as providing a readable, intimate picture of day-to-day life during the era, Living on the Home Front is full of authentic wartime recipes for the reader to try, and tips on everything from growing your own vegetables to mending clothes
