If Lancashire seemed remote from the fight in 1939, the war was brought home to its residents when German bombers began targeting Manchester and Liverpool in 1940. This nostalgic history recalls wartime in the county as factories turned to military production, food was in short supply, thousands of Americans were welcomed to the area and local entertainers such as Gracie Fields and George Formby kept the people's spirits up.
