Land at War was first published in 1945 to illustrate and explain the crucial part played by Britain's farms in the war effort. It paints a fascinating portrait of Britain in the 1940's, with photographs and descriptions of the people at work on the land. It is not just a book about rural life, but more a story of the resourcefulness and determination that prevailed throughout the country. "No weapon ever invented is more deadly than hunger; it can spike guns, destroy courage, and break the will of the most resolute peoples. This is the story of Britain's battlefield, the land; and of how 300,000 farms, strong points in the battle against hunger, were armed, equipped and manned, so that the rich though neglected soil of these islands could be won back to fertility and help to sustain a nation at war."
