FACED with a book on the "hidden history" of the home front in the .

FACED with a book on the "hidden history" of the home front in the Second World War, the reader may well wonder who has been hiding it. Who has been covering up our unadmitted shortcomings - the evidence, perhaps, of treasons and conspiracies, of giant profiteering rip-offs and confederacies of black-market crime? The answer is: Nobody. Stuart Hylton wanted to correct the popular image of cockneys singing along with Vera Lynn in the ruins of their homes. But he has tapped no lost archives, ransacked no cabinets noirs Talking about the weather was allowed, but weather forecasts were suppressed for fear of aiding enemy bombers.

Source C: From Careless Talk: The Hidden History of the Home Front 1939–45 by Stuart Hylton, published in 2001. Ernest Bevin, the Minister for Labour, encouraged an extra . million women to move to essential industries between 1939 and 1943. It was not easy to persuade women to move from working in less important industries to work in industries that were vital to the war effort. This was partly due to the boring and unpleasant nature of much of the war work.

The traditional image of the Home Front in World War II is of cheery Londoners, singing along to Vera Lynn on the radio and making do and mending as bombs fall all around them. But there was another side to life in wartime Britain, a side many would like to forget. Questionable Governmental procedures often hindered Britain's chance of winning the war. With meticulous plans for protecting the nation's art treasures, little preparation was made for the protection of its population. A catalogue of authoritarian blunders shows in frightening detail just how close Britain came to a totalitarian state. Propaganda fed to the people bore scant relation to the facts, and dark forces like racism found a ready outlet in wartime society. Crime continued to flourish, and the class tensions in prewar society were often thrown into sharp relief. This is a portait of a nation at arms.
