  • the reception of London evacuees to a place of greater safety;
  • the victory of the Battle of Britain;
  • the preparations for invasion and the underground British resistance;
  • the movement towards post-war social reform;

as well as detailed recollections of the bombs that fell, the planes that crashed and those who lost their lives, at home and abroad.
