Review:

"The historical value of this evidence is enormous" (Noel Malcolm The Sunday Telegraph)

"Digestible form with valuable contextual notes. There are many fleeting gems" ( Observer)

"This invaluable book brings us history in real time. With its echo of voices of civilians... Listening to Britain provides a matchless insight into the contradictory, confused and complex experience of living through Britain's "finest hour"" (Juliet Gardiner Financial Times)

"[The reports] offer an invaluable and unvarnished insight into thoughts and feelings about events without the benefit of hindsight... I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes reading non-fiction about the war or fiction set at this time" ( Bookbag.co.uk)

"Fascinating collection of reports" (Christoper Hirst Independent)

Book Description:

First publication of a unique resource that provides fascinating insight into the mood of the nation - at a crucial time in the Second World War when the conflict's outcome was far from certain
