War, State and Society

Explore the reality of Britain’s Home Front in World War II through thousands of primary source documents reporting on and managing every aspect of the civilian population’s daily lives, from evacuation to food rationing, and air raids to propaganda. Covering social, economic and cultural affairs, this resource provides a unique insight into the everyday impacts of total war.

“The sheer volume of material available here deserves recognition: this is not a partial nor selective view, but rather a comprehensive catalogue of various aspects of British society during the Second World War.”
— David Clampin, Liverpool John Moores University
