IWM: War on the Homefront
The popularity of the recent reconstruction of the 1940's House in the Imperial War Museum bears eloquent testimony to people's interest in how life was lived during the war. What did people eat? How were their lives changed? How was morale sustained? How did the British people cope with the air raids, with regulations, shortages, separation and loss? "The Imperial War Museum's Britain at War Experience" answers these questions by using facsimiles of actual documents and memorabilia from the time: photographs, paintings, propaganda, regulations, witness accounts. These are framed with a vivid narrative account of a multi-faceted war that involved the entire nation.
