May Smith was a 24-year-old schoolteacher, living with her parents in Swadlincote, Derbyshire when war broke out in 1939. The previous year she had started keeping the diary in which she recorded both the mundane details of life and the extraordinary impact of war up to and beyond VE day. Introduced by Juliet Gardiner, this is May's 'snapshot of life as it was really lived'.
