I received this book in exchange for an honest review. It took me awhile to get around to reading it because it was only available in PDF and I have a nook so it was itty bitty text.
[Britain at War 1939 to 1945: What was life like during the war?] by [James Lingard] starts out with personal account from him as a child during the war. This is well written and a very interesting perspective. The book continues to be well written and informative but loses that personal narrative as the author just begins relating the history of the war. It would have been better if he just focused on the narrative from the point of view of Britain rather than give a history lecture.
