Between May and September 1940, a period that saw such historic events as Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain and the start of the Blitz, the Ministry of Information eavesdropped on the conversations of ordinary people across the UK and compiled secret daily reports on the state of popular morale. Edited and introduced by two leading historians, the unabridged sequence of reports provides a unique insight into the mindset of the British as the fate of the nation hung in the balance.
