Based on transcripts of recorded interviews with senior civilians and former members of the Armed Services, this book provides a first-hand narrative of what it was like to live under the shadow of war. The everyday hardships and heroism are recalled: the Blitz, rationing, the Home Guard, evacuees, war work, and the American presence prior to D-Day. Despite all the tragedy and difficulties, the Mancunian spirit shines through with the frequent dash of unquenchable humour. Richly illustrated, and filled with true accounts of local heroism and of the unbreakable spirit of the people of Manchester during these tumultuous years, this book looks at how the city fared during the Second World War, played her part in victory, and how the day-to-day life of her people was affected.
