Much has been
written about Britain's Military role in World War Two. From the Outbreak
of hostilities in 1939 to peace in 1945, accounts of Britain's early struggle
through to her eventual victory are well documented.
But what of those
left behind? Those civilians of the home front left to face their own
hardships and the ever changing times. How did they cope with the restrictions
of rationing? How did they come to terms with the frightening reality of
air raid bombings? How did British women overcome male disdain and evolve
from their recognised role of home makers to that of the working women of the
'Women's Royal Voluntary Service (WVS)', munitions factories, the 'Women's Land
Army (WLA)' and the such like?
The 'Home Sweet
Home Front' web site has been designed to go some way to give insight into what it was really like for those heroes and heroines of the
British home front during World War Two- click and enjoy!
