Description
From May to September 1940, during a period that saw some of the most dramatic events of the war—the evacuation from Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, and the opening stages of the Blitz—the Ministry of Information compiled daily reports on the morale of the nation for circulation within the offices of Whitehall. From rumors about German spies disguised as nuns to concerns about anti-Semitism in the heavily bombed East End of London, these opinions and rumors appear here verbatim, forming a collective portrait of the British public at a time when the fate of the nation hung in the balance. Paul Addison and Jeremy Crang's introduction puts the reports in the context of the time period, and a glossary of people and events mentioned in the book is also included.
