1st ed., 2000. 160 pp., profusely illustrated with cold., photo-ills. D.j., 26 x 22cm. Nr.FINE. Colour photography was still in its infancy in 1939. With the outbreak of the war against Germany, the short supply of colour film made colour photographs even more rare. But some were taken and a few of them have survived. Most of these images have remained unseen for decades but this book presents them in all their splendour along with a brief outline of the war and a chronology of its major events. They also illustrate a unique selection of personal accounts of the war, through intimate letters and diaries. A stunning new look at Britain during the Second World War.
