As in other areas of the country, Lancashire's out-of-uniform population was turned to war production in 1939, producing the Hampden, Halifax and Lancaster bombers, ships from the Cammell Laird yard at Birkenhead and black-out curtains, uniforms and the like from the old cotton mills. This local history draws on hundreds of previously unpublished first-hand accounts to chronicle life on the Home Front in Lancashire during the Second World War.
