Review:

Touching on almost every aspect of daily life towards the end of the war, from the kitchen to the workplace, she imbues the era with a sense of immediacy which few other histories of the subject can match (The Sunday Times)

Fascinating, impressive and meticulously researched ... a treasure trove (Daily Express)

She writes with a great affection for London ... a compelling picture of the life of the ordinary Londoner (The Spectator)

An ambitious enterprise, and Waller brings it off admirably - a sort of Bayeux Tapestry (The Times)

Meticulously researched account imbues the second-world-war era with a matchless sense of immediacy (Sunday Times)

A wonderfully vivid panorama of a thrilling time (The Scotsman)

A wholly compulsive read ... outstanding (The Hampstead and Highgate Express)

Magisterial ... a fine account in which sober analysis is combined with a mass of memorable and emotive information (Daily Mail)

A triumph (Western Daily Press)

An enjoyable read and meticulously researched (The Guardian)
