Summary
"As the people of Britain gathered around their radios, the Prime Minister confirmed what many had feared for months: Britain was at war with Germany. Drawing on the Imperial War Museum's extensive archives, this book features the personal stories of men and women who lived through the startling events of the first year of the Second World War. From the first shot fired to the first wartime Christmas, The Day We Went To War is a unique, personal and affecting account of one of the most tumultuous years in British history."--Back cover
