Summary
Servicemen and women remember the battles on air, sea, and land; prisoners of war describe how they coped and civilians speak of bombs and doodlebugs. The words of Winston Churchill, JB Priestley and the irreverence of ITMA boosted morale in the darkest hours, and throughout it all the BBC's own correspondents all over the world reported on this turbulent decade. Taken from the BBC archive, hear recordings about the events of British history during the 1940's, described by the people who lived them
