278pp, plates, maps. At the outbreak of war Richard Brown became a faithful recorder of life on the home front and events around the world in twelve notebooks, 400,000 words and several carefully drawn maps. Concurrent with this narrative of the war, he presented a fascinating image of life in wartime Britain, rationing, blackout restrictions, interrupted sleep, the prospect of evacuation and the enormous burden placed on those civilians coping with a full-time job and the extra demands of war work.
