    During the Second World War beer was seen as vital for maintaining morale among both civilians and the armed forces. This history reveals how this came about, charting the rise of the pub as the bastion of the nation's morale and embodiment of its fighting spirit. Glover also describes the epic struggle of the breweries to maintain production, despite shortages of men, materials and ingredients. Archive photographs complement this highly readable study of an industry in wartime.
